Online Training

I completed my state-required online course (California customers only) and need to schedule an exam date, what do I do?

To schedule an exam date at a location of your choice, call the NNA at 1-800-876-6827. 

What should I bring to the exam (California customers only)?

  • A check or money order for $40 payable to "Secretary of State" ($20 for those re–taking the exam)
  • A current state–approved identification card, passport or U.S. Military I.D. card. Paper extensions are not accepted.
  • Notary Public application. California applications must be printed double-sided to be accepted by the state.
  • Copy of your Proof of Completion Certificate from your online training course

Do I need any additional supplies to complete the commissioning process in California?

All Notaries in California (New and Renew) must complete a background screening and submit a passport-style photo as a part of the application process.  You can schedule these services when you call to book your exam date.  Also, if you haven't done so already, you must purchase state-required supplies such as a Notary bond, stamp, and journal. Order these supplies during your call to the NNA.
