If you are new to the mortgage business and want to know where to get started, there are several steps to getting your Texas Loan Originator License. 


First, you will have to register for a login and password through the NMLS website https://www.statemortgageregistry.com/Public/Login.aspx and click Request an Account. 


Once you have done this you will have to chose where to take the required 23 hours of class time or the 23-Hour SAFE Comprehensive Course and pass the National Exam. This includes completing the required 20-Hour SAFE course and 2-Hour TX-SML SAFE: Texas Law and Practice before you are able to take the National Exam. There are several online and physical locations you can take the required course. Here are two options that several of our team have used to completed the required course work.


**Champions School of Real Estate https://www.championsschool.com/ which offers several ways to complete the required courses. 

**Allied Real Estate Schools, https://www.alliedschools.com/ which is all on-line.


Both of these options offer Exam PREP courses to help you prepare to take and pass the Exam after completed the required courses. You can also go on-line to CompuCram and pay for their test prep course to help you pass the test. https://www.compucram.com/exam-prep/mortgage-lending/safe-mlo-national.html 


Prior to scheduling to take your licensing Exam with Prometric it must be paid for through the NMLS. Once paid you will have up to 180 days to schedule your appointment and take the test. There is a 30 day waiting period for exam retakes. If after 2 attemps you do not pass the test, you will have to wait 6 months before being able to take the test again. You will have to pay for each test taken. 


Now that you have passed the exam you will have to submit an MU4 Form to the NMLS as well as complete a criminal background check, credit check and finger prints. After paying the fees associated with processing of your licens, credit report and background check the application is processed. Once complete your license goes into an Approved/Inactive status. It is at this point that a company can now sponsor your license and when approved will be able to start originating mortgage loans.
