The State of Florida does not have an automatic renewal process for notaries. In order to renew your Florida Notary Commission, you must reapply through a notary bonding agency, which includes purchasing another 4-year $7,500 surety bond. However, if your last commission did not expire more than 10 years ago, you do not need to retake the three-hour educational course.
It is recommended you begin the renewal process at least six months before your current Notary Commission expires.
New notaries and notaries who have not renewed their commission in the past 10 years are required to take at least three hours of state-approved education. Renewing notaries whose last commission expired less than 10 years ago do not need to take this course.
Your Florida Notary Commission will be valid for four years.
Yes, the state requires all Florida notaries to hold a $7,500, four-year surety bond. This bond does not protect the notary but protects the public from any mistakes the notary might make.
No, you submit your application with the original documentation to:
Notaries.com (formerly Huckleberry Notary Bonding, Inc)
225 E Robinson St #570
Orlando, FL 32801
Notaries.com will submit your application to the state, including the $39 state filing fee.
No. As Notaries.com will submit your application to the state, you must send your original and signed application to us.
The entire process can take up to three weeks, but it varies depending on how quickly you complete and submit your application. It also depends on how long it takes the state to appoint you as a Florida notary.
You will receive your notary stamp once the state appoints you as a Florida notary and assigns to you a State Commission Number and an expiration date. Once Notaries.com receives those, we will create your stamp and send it to you via first class USPS mail along with your state-issued certificate.
