Interesting Rule for MLO Test Takers

Federal Regulations

I was scrolling through Federal Regulations (my favorite light reading) and discovered a new rule. Thought it might be of interest to MLO company leaders and future applicants for the National Exam. To become an MLO you have to complete a 20 Hour Pre-Licensure Course and pass an exam.

The Interesting Point :

You do not have to take the course before you sign up for the exam. The cost of the courses runs from a low of around $450 (for Duane Gomer Inc.) to much, much more from other companies. This is a chance to just take the test cold turkey and see how you do. This is only for the brave and foolhardy as the Course and our Exam Prep Course really prepare you for the exam. Any questions call me personally at 800-439-4909.

This is different than DRE and the Notary Public regulations. For those you must complete the pre-courses before you can test.

So you applicants, you could see how you would do on the test. The cost is $110.00. About 59% of the students are passing it at this time. Or you could schedule your exam before you take the course so that you get a time that is suitable for you.

We will always keep looking for ways to make it easier for you.

    My name is Hilda Zamora. I have been taking your courses and love them. I am now trying to get my NMLS license. I have taken the state test twice and failed. My question is; has any of the material changed since September 2018? I will be taking me test in the next couple of weeks and I want to make sure that the material that I have from you (Duane Gomer) is still good to study?
