All new notaries must take a 6-hour course. On-time renewing notaries may take the 3-hour or 6-hour courses.
To be eligible for the 3-hour course, you must complete the course and pass the state exam before your current California notary public commission expires.
If you are coming to a live class, you will be able to select the 3-hour or 6-hour class option and your class date during the registration process. All of the live classes in San Diego are held at the Days Hotel in Mission Valley. The state exam is administered by Cooperative Personnel Services (CPS) immediately following each live class. An email confirmation with the class details will be sent to you.
If you are selecting an online or self-study option and would like to come to the state exam that immediately follows our live courses, please select your exam date during the registration process.
Live scan fingerprinting is required for all new and renewing notaries.
