For Examination And Licensure.
|(1) Should any applicant for a real estate broker's or
salesperson's license falsely answer any questions on either his/her examination
or license application or misrepresent any facts relating to either application,
said application may be rejected by the Commission and returned to the applicant.
Any applicant whose application is not deemed acceptable may request a
hearing before the Commission relative to such rejection.
(2) Any real estate broker who knowingly signs a license application stating the applicant under his/her sponsorship is of good reputation and is trustworthy may be held liable for such statements; and should a routine investigation of the applicant's background prove otherwise, the sponsoring broker may be subject to a fine or revocation or suspension of his/her license.
(3) All salesperson and broker license applications must contain a recent photograph which was taken within the past 12 months.
(4) The examination appointment must be made and the examination fee paid to the testing agency as published in the Candidate Handbook. When the registration has been processed, the applicant will be notified of the time to report to the exam center. Unscheduled candidates will not be admitted.
(5) An examination fee must be paid for each scheduled examination whether or not the applicant takes the exam unless the applicant is rescheduled in accordance with policies as specified in the Candidate Handbook.
(6) Applicants who fail the examination may retake the examination by following application procedures as outlined in the Alabama Candidate Handbook.
(7) The passing grade for both the salesperson and broker examinations shall be seventy (70). A time limit of three and one-half (3 1/2) hours is hereby set and allotted for completion of the required examination.
(8) All salesperson and broker applicants must complete all required course work, including passing the course final examination, prior to taking the state examination.
(9) Salesperson applicants must show successful proof of completion of the 60 hour salesperson prelicense course by presenting their Certificate of Course Completion to the exam center supervisor. An approved certificate is required before admittance to the exam will be granted.
(10) Broker applicants will not be issued a Certificate of Course Completion for the 15 hour broker prelicense course and are therefore not required to take it to the exam center in order to be admitted to the state exam. They are, however, required to be qualified to sit for the exam and must check with the Commission if the need exists to verify qualifications. Failure to meet broker qualifications prior to taking the broker examination will result in the exam score being rendered null and void and may subject the broker applicant to disciplinary action by the Commission.
