No, You have to pass a school exam first. Remember, we are considered to be experts once we complete schooling and testing. You can't possibly go out into the field without a complete understanding of NY laws and protocol. The state feels the same way :)

I did pass New Jersey School Exam but have not taken NJ real estate exam. My intention is to take NY real estate exam rather NJ one. In this case, do I still need to take NY class?

Ask your Broker, he will be the best resource for this.

Just curious, are you planning to sell real estate in both markets? Which market do you know more and which market would you like to focus your energy on? Give me a call when you have some time I would love to talk about what steps you can take to help your business grow.

I own a real estate school in Bergen County and I can say that you first have to pass the NJ test then get an education waiver from the NY real estate commission to forego the pre-license class and just take their exam. NJ and NY have license reciprocity. If you're looking for a refresher I teach a state exam review course the 3rd Friday of every month from 6-10pm at our Maywood Location, 230 West Passaic Street, Maywood, NJ 07607.

Jenqbiaulee, did you get your license in both NY and NJ?

You will have to take classes for New York and then the test. The two states do not reciprocate their Real Estate licenses.

Sorry Marsha, not true. I in fact have done this myself and not have to take classes in NY. Proof of hours and passing the class in NJ is what is needed and sent to the NY RE Commission for approval.

You need to take your State exam, pass the test and become licensed. Then you need to go to your school and get a copy of your transcript that you took the course and passed the school test. Then you need to contact the NJ RE Commission and get proof that you are a NJ licensed Realtor. Then you take all this information and send it to the NY RE Commission to be waived for the class hours, then you an take the test in NY.

Look up the reciprocal laws in NY to verify what I posted.. You can call them also.. very nice people.

Then you need to hang your license with a NJ broker and you need to hang your license with a NY

Not too sure if you can just use your class time towards your NY license alone. Although NJ does require more class hours for a license than NY, there are differences in the laws and procedures.

Good Luck!
