  1. Pass the California Notary Public Exam:

    • Register for the exam administered by CPS HR Consulting.
      • You can register online at or by calling them at (916) 263-3520.
    • Prepare for the exam by studying the relevant laws and regulations pertaining to notary services in California.
  2. Submit Your Application:

    • Obtain a California Notary Public application form.
    • Fill out the application completely and accurately.
    • Include all required documents along with the application fee.
  3. Undergo a Live Scan Background Check:

    • Schedule a Live Scan fingerprinting appointment at a designated location.
    • The Live Scan will electronically submit your fingerprints to the Department of Justice for a background check.
  4. Obtain a Surety Bond:

    • Purchase a $15,000 surety bond from a licensed bonding company.
    • The surety bond protects the public against any financial wrongdoing by the notary.
  5. File Your Commission Packet:

    • Once you pass the background check, you will receive a commission packet from the California Secretary of State.
    • This packet will include your notary public commission and instructions on how to file it with the county clerk.
  6. File Your Bond and Oath of Office:

    • File the surety bond and oath of office with the county clerk within 30 days of receiving your commission packet.
  7. Purchase Notary Supplies:

    • Obtain a notary public journal and notary public seal from an authorized vendor.
    • You may also want to consider purchasing error and omission (E&O) insurance for additional protection.
