How to take the Virginia License Exam
The Virginia real estate license exam is run by PSI, a company that provides testing services for real estate licensing in many states. PSI also has testing services for many other professions. PSI is physically located in Las Vegas, NV and has a website at psiexams.com. To pass you need these scores
National portion: 70% (56 out of 80) 1 hour 45 minutes.
State portion: 75% (30 out of 40) 45 minutes
There are 5-10 additional questions that don’t count toward your time or score.
If you don’t pass one, you only need to retake the one you failed. But you need to reschedule and pay another $60. There is is no limit on retakes, just the $60.
