New Mexico Adopts the New National SAFE MLO Test with Uniform State Component


New Mexico is the latest state to announce that it will be adopting the new National SAFE Mortgage Loan Originator (MLO) Test with a Uniform State Test (UST). The New Mexico Financial Institutions Division will adopt the test effective January 1, 2014. The National SAFE MLO Test with a UST first became available on April 1, 2013. With this announcement, a total of 37 state mortgage agencies will have adopted the UST by the start of 2014. Remaining state agencies will continue to require new MLOs to take state-specific test components, although they may adopt the UST at a future date.
