TREC Guideline Update effective September 1, 2017

Due to the new guidelines, students are now required to take the exam in the presence of a qualified proctor


  • Do I have to take all TREC exams in presence of a proctor?
    Only TREC Real Estate Pre-license and Sales Agent Apprentice Education (SAE) Exams

  • Will be sharing a list of possible proctors?
    No. Students will need to find eligible proctors themselves and schedule an appointment.

  • Who can be an eligible Proctor?
    The following are acceptable third party proctors:

    - Employees at official testing or learning/tutoring centers;

    - Librarians at a school, university, or public library;

    - College or university administrators, faculty, or academic advisors

    - Clergy who are affiliated with a specific temple, synagogue, mosque, or church;

    - Educational officers of a military installation or correctional facility; and

    - An authorized notary.


  • Do I physically need to be present in front of the Proctor?
    Yes.  The Proctor should be able to watch you while taking the exam.

  • Where should I take this exam?
    You can take this exam anywhere as long as the proctor is present with you. However, it is recommended to take the exam at a public library, school or university.


  • Can I use books, reference material and look up things on the web during the exam?
    No. This is a closed book exam and Proctor will need to sign an affidavit confirming you did not access the web, reference materials, notes or books during this time.


  • Do we need to pay the proctor?
    You may or may not pay them.  It depends on the proctor.


The Proctor Affidavit needs to be accomplished by the Proctor, not the learner.  Incomplete/incorrect affidavits will be declined and the final exam completion will be reset.  You will be asked to retake your exam and submit a correctly accomplished Proctor Affidavit.
