Hotline Tip: Notary Stamp On Motor Vehicle Titles

NNA Hotline Tips For NotariesAs a Pennsylvania Notary, I am interested in being able to notarize vehicle titles. Does this require a special commission or customized stamp? Do the same rules apply for ATV titles? – L.H., Wayne, PA

Pennsylvania Notaries may serve as “card agents” in processing paperwork related to the title and transfer of motor vehicles within the state. You would, however, have to check with the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) to get clarification as to whether ATV titles are treated the same as a regular vehicle. You can reach PennDOT at 1-800-932-4600 or 1-717-787-7207.

Hotline answers are based on the laws in the state where the question originated and may not reflect the laws of other states. If in doubt, always refer to your own state statutes. –The Editors
