What are the exam policies at the Maryland PSI testing center?

PSI will only allow approved items into the examination room. Personal belongings must be placed in secure storage provided at each testing site before the exam. You can also store them in your vehicle. Electronic devices of any type are not permitted in the exam room, including smartwatches.

As part of the check-in process, all testing candidates are asked to empty pockets, lift the ends of their sleeves and the bottoms of their pant legs to ensure any notes or recording devices are not being hidden. Any exceptionally bulky or loose clothing that could conceal recording devices or notes is not permitted. They will also inspect eyeglass frames or any other apparel that could hide a recording device.

Any candidate found possessing prohibited items in the testing center will have the exam results invalidated and be asked to leave the examination center. A report will be made to the Maryland Real Estate Commission.
