This 3-hour course is offered for existing Notaries Public who need to renew their commission. To qualify for the 3-hour renewal course, notaries must take this course and exam prior to the expiration date of their existing commission, otherwise the full-day notary course is required. Although the 3-hour course is permissible for renewing notaries, to better prepare for the notary exam, the full-day course is encouraged due to the amount of information and the numerous changes that occurred since your previous commission date. Bring a current government issued I.D. and a $35 materials fee payable to CA Notary Training Center by cash or personal check.
The state notary exam will follow this course from 4:30-5:30pm. For the exam, bring a $40 check or money order payable to Secretary of State, a 2x2 color passport photo, and two #2 pencils.
Pre-registration is required to ensure availability of seats and materials. Additional costs for live scan fingerprinting, insurance and supplies will be explained at the class.
Per state law, students are required to attend the entire course. Late arrivals will not be permitted into the class.
