A non-regular primitive permutation group is called extremely primitive if a point stabilizer acts primitively on each of its nontrivial orbits. Let 𝒮 be a nontrivial finite regular linear space and G Aut ( 𝒮 ) . Suppose that G is extremely primitive on points and let rank ( G ) be the rank of G on points. We prove that rank ( G ) 4 with few exceptions. Moreover, we show that Soc ( G ) is neither a sporadic group nor an alternating group, and G = PSL ( 2 , q ) with q + 1 a Fermat prime if Soc ( G ) is a finite classical simple group.
