The fee for the State Exam is $58.00.  You’ll need to make sure you have two forms of identification–one MUST be a photo ID.  A photograph and a fingerprint scan photograph will be taken at the testing site.

The State Exam is computer based. It is an all multiple choice exam and a passing grade is 75% on the State portion, and 70% on the National portion. You will be given a notice of whether you passed or failed immediately.

I Love Real Estate School is an accredited Real Estate School by the State of Illinois. We teach Broker Pre-License, Post-License AND Managing Broker License Classes.

The Illinois State exam is comprised of the following:

  • 105 multiple choice questions covering “National” topics
  • 40 multiple choice questions covering “State” specific topics
  • 5 multiple choice questions chosen at random and later discarded
  • 150 total multiple choice questions

You have 4 hours total to complete the Exam.

You need 75% to pass the State portion and 70% to pass the National portion. There are four outcomes when you take the Sate Exam. You can:

1)Pass the State and the National portion of the Exam

–You are eligible to get your license!

2)Pass the State and fail the National portion of the Exam

–You can re-take just the National (105 questions) portion

up to a year later

3)Pass the National and fail the State portion of the Exam

You can re-take just the State (45 questions) portion

up to a year later

4)Fail the State and the National portion of the Exam

You can re-take entire Exam (150 questions)

After passing the State Exam, you will need to be sponsored by a real estate Sponsoring Broker within ONE year. Once you have chosen a Sponsoring Broker, the Designated Managing Broker will sign your Sponsor Card (also known as your 45 Day Permit). This allows you to start practicing real estate immediately.

You are required to apply for your Broker license within 24 hours of associating with your Sponsoring Broker by going to the IDFPR website and completing your application. The IDFPR will email you your license within 45 days. Once you receive the license, you can send it to your Designated Managing Broker to be held/displayed in the office.

The exam may be taken four times.  The fee is the same for each time. If, for some reason, you don’t pass after the fourth attempt, you must retake the pre-license course.

All Brokers Licenses expire April 30 of each even numbered year. Licenses are renewed every two years and after the first renewal, you will be required to complete 12 hours of Continuing Education before you can renew.

You have up to 2 years to pass the State Exam after completing your Pre-License Class.

The perfect choice if you're looking to become a real estate broker! I started with very little real estate experience but was able to complete the course and pass the state exam on my first attempt, in just over two weeks. The instructor, Art, does a great job of keeping you engaged and makes the material fun and relevant. You come away with everything you need to pass the state exam, but also the knowledge you need to be successful in your real estate career. Don't choose anyone else!

100% the best place to take your pre-licensing class. Without a doubt would not have passed the state exam the first time if it were not for Art's teaching.

Word cannot express how thankful I am with Art and his kind and loving staff. Everyone is extremely nice, they give you all the material and support before, during and even after you pass the exam. Art makes the course super fun and after a year of studying I finally went to school and in just 2 weeks after passing the course I pass my State Exam. He even helped me the day of the test and I can’t be more grateful. I recommended a friend and he is is ready to start class Soon. 😉 Thank you Art, Beth and Dakota for everything. Xoxo
