What Are the Steps to Become a Texas Notary?
Becoming a notary in Texas is a straightforward process. The simplest way to become a Texas notary is to choose an organization that can handle submitting your notary application to the state, issue a notary bond in the amount of $10,000 as required by the state, and manufacture your notary supplies once you are approved as a Texas notary. The organization should also be able to help in maintaining your Texas notary commission if you ever needed to update your name (due to a marriage or divorce) or address, or to help you answer questions related to notary laws during your four-year notary term.Read Article
How to Become a Texas Notary:
Compared to other states, Texas has few eligibility requirements to become a notary. The process is simple and affordable (only $89.95) for a four-year Texas notary term. To become a notary in Texas, you must be:
- 18 years of age or older
- A legal resident of the State of Texas
- Have no felony convictions or a crime involving moral turpitude.
If you meet these qualification requirements, follow the steps below to become a Texas notary.
- Complete a Texas notary application on our website (or print and mail it to us) and pay the $21.00 state application fee. Our application wizard will guide you step-by-step through the process. You also have the option to e-sign the application (eliminating the need to print and mail your notary application). For faster approval, we file all Texas notary applications electronically with the Texas Secretary of State.
- Purchase a four-year $10,000 notary bond (required by Texas law). This bond protects the public from errors made by the notary. You can purchase the bond while completing the online application process. The cost of the bond is only $50.00 for a four-year term.
- Purchase a notary stamp and a notary journal to authenticate and record notarized documents (required by Texas notary law). All our Texas notary stamps and seals are made in house and come with a life-time warranty. No questions asked! We will ship your notary supplies once we receive confirmation from the state that you are approved as a Texas notary.
- Take the oath of office before a notary. Once your application is approved, the Texas Secretary of State will supply you with the oath of office form. Take the oath of office before another notary and keep the form in your records. The whole application process takes around seven to ten working days if the information is completed correctly.
Texas notary bonds and errors and omissions insurance policies provided by this insurance agency, the American Association of Notaries, Inc., are underwritten by Western Surety Company (established 1900). American Association of Notaries is owned by Kal Tabbara, a licensed insurance agent in Texas.
