Licensed in another state?
If you are licensed in another state, call the Nevada Real Estate Division and
check with them to see what is required, in terms of education, to get your
license here. Some states have licensure reciprocity, so before embarking on
the full course, you probably want to check with the Nevada Real Estate Division
first and see if there is another option available to you. Nevada Real Estate Division Directory
The 18-hour course is designed for candidates who hold or have held a license
in another state. The Nevada Real Estate Division normally only requires the
applicant to take only the 18-hour course of Nevada law, if the applicant can
show proof of taking a 90-hour real estate pre-licensing course.
The 45- hour course is designed for candidates who can show proof of
taking a minimum of 45 hours of the required Real Estate Practices and
Principles Pre-Licensing course in another state. The Nevada Real Divison
only would require you take the 45-hour Federal and Nevada State Law Course.
