A public notary is an official appointed by the state government to witness the signing of important documents and administer oaths. They also certify copies of documents and attest to the authenticity of signatures.

The qualifications to become a public notary vary by state, but generally, you must be at least 18 years old, a legal resident of the state, and have no criminal record. Some states may also require notary education or training courses.

To become a public notary, you must typically complete an application and provide proof of your qualifications, such as a background check or proof of education. You may also need to take an exam or complete a training course. Once approved, you will need to purchase a notary bond and commission.

A notary bond is a type of reserve funds that protects the public in case of errors or misconduct by a notary. It is typically required by the state as part of the notary application process.

A notary commission is the official document that appoints a person as a public notary. It is issued by the state and includes the notary’s name, term of office, and other important information.

A notary public can notarize a wide range of documents, including affidavits, deeds, powers of attorney, and loan documents. However, they cannot notarize their own documents or documents in which they have a financial interest.

The fees that a notary public can charge for their services vary by state. Some states have set fees, while others allow notaries to set their own fees.

Exams are administered by CPS HR Consulting and registration can be made online at notary.cpshr.us or by calling CPS HR Consulting at (916) 263-3520.

Notaries public who have previously completed an approved six-hour notary public education course and have a current active commission are eligible to take an approved three-hour refresher course.

A six-hour approved notary public education course satisfies the requirement for a three-hour refresher course and always satisfies the education requirement, regardless if you are a new applicant or applying for reappointment.

If you failed the notary public exam, and you can take the exam again prior to the expiration date of your current notary public commission, the Proof of Completion certificate from the approved three-hour education course would still be valid. Attach the Proof of Completion certificate to your application, along with a 2″ x 2″ color passport photo of yourself and a check for $20.00 when you go to the exam site. However, if your commission expires prior to

retaking the exam, you will be required to take an approved six-hour education course, even though you already took an approved three-hour education course. You will need to attach the Proof of Completion certificate from the approved six-hour education course to the application, along with a 2″ x 2″ color passport photo of yourself and a check for $20.00. If you have not already had your Live Scan fingerprints taken, you will need to submit fingerprints via Live Scan.

See Check List. Subject to passing a background check, a notary public commission can be obtained by completing 6-hour education, passing an exam to verify your knowledge about the laws and regulations affecting notary public services.
