Don't forget to take a California Notary Course. In California, all first-time and renewing notaries have to take it! But don't worry, we make it easy to sign up for the required course. New notaries must take a six-hour course and renewing notaries must take a three-hour course. You can take either course at Notaries.com.
When applying through Notaries.com you'll complete all the information requested here at Notaries.com. You must type your name exactly as you want it to appear on your commission. Do not alter your last name in any way. The name entered will be used for identification purposes and must match your picture identification used for entry to the examination. If you do not have a middle name, enter "NMN" in the appropriate space. If your first or middle name consists of an initial only, enter "Initial Only" following the initial.
Your Notary Stamp must include your Notary Commission's expiration date, so we cannot manufacture your customized notary stamp until after the state has issued your California Notary Commission number and expiration date, which you must mail to us. Be sure to keep a copy for yourself.
Affordable Notary Errors and Omissions Insurance (E&O) is a critical component of any Notary's portfolio. E&O insurance protects you, the notary, against any potentially devastating financial costs of lawsuits that could result from an error you make as a notary. This insurance is necessary for every new and renewing notary, at a very reasonable cost. It is an added benefit to ensure your protection while acting in your duties as a notary, and it runs concurrent with your notary term. It is protection worth considering!
