As you may have heard, beginning April 30, 2011, the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR) will no longer issue new real estate salesperson licenses. The original deadline for a new salesperson candidate to pass the state exam was March 15, 2011, to allow the state sufficient time to process and issue the new licenses.
For many of you who have been pulling all-nighters to meet this looming deadline, your stress levels were taken to new heights when you found out that most test centers around the state were full. Real Estate Institute has fielded so many calls from panicked students.

- Testing will now be permitted through Saturday, March 19, 2011.
