The day and the evening sessions cover the same topics (although they do run on different schedules).  Feel free to mix and match as your schedule permits.  As long as you sit through all 15 modules in their entirety, you can do so in either the day or night session.  A course itinerary can be found on our website under Student Resources

1.  Register for the PSI exam via mail or fax using the registration form found at the end of the PSI Candidate Bulletin.   A copy of your current (unexpired) license MUST accompany the registration.

2.  Pass the Virginia state portion of the PSI exam. 

3.  Request a certified copy of your out-of-state license from your state. 

4.  Obtain proof that you completed 60 hours of real estate education that satisfies the similar to Virginia course requirement.

Any felony during lifetime or certain misdemeanors may disqualify, but the Real Estate Board makes the final decision.  Disclosing this information does not necessarily disqualify you for licensure.  On the other hand, a failure to disclose information about any such behavior, with or without any felony conviction, will most likely lead to a denial of license.  

You do not need to be a Virginia resident to get a real estate license in the state.

Dear Bob: Just sending a note of thanks for giving me a solid foundation to kick start my real estate career. The PSI Exam was easy & I couldn't have passed it without your expertise & great teaching. Thank you! After being in the business for 30 days or so, I've met a lot of agents... Most of them did not have a great teacher & most of them will not recommend their school... I, on the other hand, will be speaking of you FOREVER!! You definitely are "the best in the Business"!!

Thanks Bob Chance for doing a great job presenting to us what my husband Ken and I needed to get thru the Virginia State salesman and broker exam! We quickly got enrolled with PSI upon completion of your final class and got our licenses. Appreciate you understanding the challenges we faced coming from another state. Good thing, the new agency disclosure coming out July 1 is what we have been practicing for the last five years in Texas! So, we will feel like something is familiar to us. Thanks again!
