About Larson Educational Services:

Family-owned and operated Larson Educational Services has had its doors open in Fort Myers since November 2008, but the beginnings of the business date back to the 1970’s.

Rick Larson, Larson Educational Services co-founder and manager, opened a real estate education company in 1979 in St. Paul, Minnesota, called PROSOURCE Educational Services. The business grew to include real estate, mortgage, appraisal, insurance, securities, contractor, home inspection and computer education.

In 2001, Rick, along with his partner, Joe Coyne, sold the business to Kaplan Professional Schools, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Washington Post.

He and his instructors have assisted more than 500,000 professionals to pass their exams and achieve their career goals in real estate, real estate appraisal, residential construction, insurance and mortgage loan origination.

In 2007, two of Rick’s five sons, David and Brad Larson, approached Rick and talked of starting up a family-owned education company. The only place they talked of operating the business was in Southwest Florida where they had spent countless winter breaks vacationing from school.

After finding a great location to build two classrooms in Royal Palm Square Shopping Center in Fort Myers in early 2008, Larson Educational Services offered its first Florida Real Estate Licensing class in November 2008, and has since added many new classes and has become very involved in all of the Southwest Florida communities. In March 2010, the Larson’s expanded by adding an additional classroom location at Horseshoe Park of Commerce in Naples, just North of the Naples Municipal Airport, and in February 2011, the Larson’s began offering courses in Sarasota at the Hyatt Place, across the street from the Sarasota Bradenton International Airport. In August 2015, a brand new Naples-based facility was constructed at Marquesa Plaza at the intersection of Livingston and Pine Ridge Rd.

You are required to take and pass the SAFE Act National Test with Uniform State Test (UST). Our recommendation is to take the test within 10 after you’ve completed the 20 hour pre-licensing course. A score of 75% or better is required to pass the SAFE Act test.

  • TEST ENROLLMENT: First you must create a TEST ENROLLMENT on the NMLS website. You will pay a $110 fee for the National Test with Uniform State Test (UST) upon the enrollment. Creating the enrollment is what will give you permission to schedule the test.

How To Pay For A Test Enrollment

  • SCHEDULE YOUR TESTS: **You must pay for the tests in the step above BEFORE you can schedule a test date.** The tests are given by Prometric Testing Centers, and they have centers located throughout the state of Florida and across the country.

5 EASY TIPS TO PASS YOUR FLORIDA REAL ESTATE EXAM

Capture

The key to passing your state exam is preparation. Preparation involves working through the key components of every one of the 100 questions on the exam. Let’s go over a few quick testing strategies that will immediately boost your chances of passing.

1. Take your time.
You have three and a half hours to answer the questions, which means there is no need to rush. Just take a deep breath and trust your preparation.

2. Read all the darn questions…2 times.
It’s too easy to skip over key words in the question. Our brain has this nasty habit of filling in the the blanks of sentences when we haven’t even seen every word. For example, did you notice the repeated word “the” in the last sentence? Give yourself a chance of getting the questions right by reading them each 2 times.

3. Read all the darn answers…2 times.
Before choosing an answer – even if you are 100% positive it’s right – read through all the choices. It may be that you have prematurely selected a response that is correct, but there could be another answer that is more correct. If you fail to read through all the answers there’s a chance you may mark the wrong one.

4. Longer is better.
If you come to a question that has you completely stumped, usually the longest choice is the most likely to be correct. This is not a hard rule of thumb, but rather an indicator to go off of when you don’t have any idea what the answer could be.

5. Treat each multiple choice question as 4 true-false questions.
Each multiple choice question will have 4 answers, each of which you should regard as a true-false question. This will help you ensure that you aren’t missing any details when responding to each question.

Hopefully these quick tips help you pass your Florida real estate exam. Remember, you can miss 25 of the 100 questions and still pass the exam. There’s no need to be perfect, just pass.
