Notary Bulletin Can I Use An Out-Of-State ID To Apply For A Notary Commission? By NNA Staff on July 31, 2014 in Hotline Tips I am a Colorado Notary who is about to move to Texas, and I’d like to apply for a Texas Notary commission. Can I do that even though I still have my Colorado driver’s license? — T.W., Denver, CO When you apply for your Texas Notary commission, you must provide evidence that you are a legal resident of the State of Texas. As long as you can provide some form of proof of legal residence, the fact that you want to use your Colorado driver’s license as identification should not be a problem. 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 Confronted with a tricky notarization? Unsure how to proceed?
