My sister was born with cerebral palsy, I am intimately familiar with those affected by physical disabilities. The Department of Real Estate has a form that you can use, if needed, to request special accommodations during your state exam.

Here is an excerpt from the form"

"In compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Public Law 101-336, the Department of Real Estate (DRE) provides “reasonable accommodations” for examination
applicants with disabilities. It is the applicant’s responsibility to notify DRE of alternative arrangements needed. DRE will provide special accommodations once your accommodation needs are documented. The information requested below and any documentation regarding your disability will be considered strictly confidential and will not be shared with any outside source without your express written permission."

In 2006, I brought this to the attention of the California Department of Real Estate at an open forum and DRE executive Barbara Bigby assured me that the DRE is committed to providing examinees with accommodations in compliance with the Americans With Disabilities Act.

ADHI Schools is committed to providing a world-class learning experience. Please let me know if we can help in any way!
