A new notary applicant, or one who has not renewed their existing commission before it expired, must appear in person to take the notary oath. A renewal application submitted before the present term expires can be mailed to the Clerk’s office. Renewals will be accepted up to 30 days before the expiration date of the existing commission. Your personal appearance is not required.
Effective September 1, 2012 all new notary applicants must complete the Notary training using the website: http://training.gsccca.org and then pay the $10, online, for the final exam. You need a 90% or higher to receive a certificate that you’ll then bring in with your completed application. If you received your notary commission after September 1, 2012 and you have not let your commission expire, you do not need to take the exam again.
Effective January 1, 2017 all notary applications are handled through the GSCCCA website.
