If you fail the license examination, you may reschedule and retake the examination. You must wait 10 days before you can attempt the exam again. Please note that the $100 application fee PLUS the $64 examination fee will be collected each time an applicant takes one or both sections of the license examination.
An applicant who fails both the National and State sections of the comprehensive examination must continue to take the comprehensive examination on any subsequent attempt until such time as the applicant passes either the National or State section. Please note that the $100 application fee PLUS the $64 examination fee will be collected each time an applicant takes one or both sections of the license examination.
Once an applicant has passed one of the two examination sections, the applicant may apply to take only the remaining unpassed exam section. Both sections must be passed during the same 180-day examination eligibility period. If an applicant only passes one examination section prior to the end of the 180-day examination eligibility period, then the applicant loses the benefit of having passed one section, must reapply to take the comprehensive examination, and pass both sections during the subsequent 180-day exam eligibility period to be eligible to receive a North Carolina real estate broker license.
