The Realtor Code of Ethics test must be taken every four years.

The National Association of Realtors instituted a Code of Ethics exam requirement for its members in 2001. The Code of Ethics is updated yearly, and all Realtors must take an exam on the code every four years.

The Two Tests

New members of the National Association of Realtors must take the New Member Code of Ethics Orientation and exam when they join the organization. Existing members must take the Quadrennial Realtor Ethics Training course and the exam pertaining to it within a four-year cycle.

Material Covered on the Code of Ethics Exams

The new member and existing member code of ethics exam cover basically the same material and include many of the same questions. The exam is a 25-question true/false exam covering subjects such as real estate licensing laws, definition of ethics, communication with other realtors' clients, misrepresentation of facts, protecting a property owner's interests, grievance committee procedures, accuracy in written documents and regulation of advertising.
