The notary public commission is a gubernatorial appointment. Not everyone can be a Notary. Notary public are public officers appointed and commissioned by the Governor. They are not
licensed; They are appointed. An appointment is a privilege, not a right. To become a notary you will have a background check completed by the state, and you are required to take the state exam. Also you will need to have a statement of character from some who has known you for at least 1 year. Once you have that you will need to acquire you stamp, Bond, insurance and certificate through an approved vendor. You cannot have any Felonies that have not been dismissed or any misdemeanors that involve domestic violence. For more information please click the button below.
