Notary & Apostille
Renew a Notary Commission
Renewals can be submitted as soon as 1 month prior to the expiration date. If the renewal is received after the expiration date, it will still be processed as a renewal, and you will keep the same commission number, and you will be issued a new expiration date.
Applicants who are renewing their commission do not need to retake the qualification course and exam, so long as their commission has not been expired more than one year.
Within 45 days of the notary application being approved the notary must purchase and provide proof of their official stamp by submitting the Stamp Registration Form. Failure to do so will result in a referral to the State Ethics Commission.
