California notary commission terms are four (4) years. In order to recommission, the notary should consider completing all of the state requirements well before their current commission expires. The Secretary of State recommends to begin the process 6 months before the commission expires to avoid a lapse in commission terms, but our experience is that waiting until three (3) to four (4) months before the commission expires is sufficient time for almost everyone. It is currently taking about 5-6 weeks to process commisson applications as long as the live scan is submitted on the day of the notary examination.
|As long as you take your class or online course and pass the state notary exam before your current commission expires, you may use the 3-hour notary class or the 3-hour online notary course to satisfy the recommissioning educational requirements. If you take the 3-hour course or class, and then you do not pass the notary examination, you may not re-take the exam within the same calendar month. If your current commission will expire before you re-take the exam, you will no longer qualify for that 3-hour course you took and will be required to not only re-take the exam, but will be required to take the full 6-hour class or course before retaking the exam.|
PLEASE CONSIDER TAKING THE 6-HOUR CLASS IN-PERSON, EVEN IF YOU DON'T HAVE TO.
The notary exam can cover all kinds of notary-related legislation, especially laws and proceedures that we do not otherwise never think about when we do every-day Acknowledgments and Jurats.
You do not want to over-estimate your ability to pass this exam the first time just because you have been a long-time notary.
If you take our Notary Class and Same-Day Exam at any of our locations, you qualify to register for the Loan Signing Certification Class for just $100! You will have the opportunity to submit and pay for your
discounted registration anytime during the day of your notary class.
A Certified Loan Signer is a Notary who has passed Certification qualification which is meant to demonstrate that they have acquired specific knowledge about the unique Notarial requirements especially related to Loan Documents. Most Certified Loan Signers are independent entrepreneurs who typically start off their business by charging between $80 to $120 per Loan Signing assignment, but experienced certified Loan Signers will charge as much as $250 per assignment and a busy Loan Signer will have 2-3 appointments in a day.
This makes a terrific opportunity to start your own full-time or part-time business that you can set any schedule you like.
Most Certified Loan Signing Notaries also provide additional mobile Notary services for hospitals, convalescent centers, estate planning attorneys and directly to individual clients at a coffee shop or their homes, although those fees are usually much less than for Loan Signing documents. Still, the combination of the two can be quite satisfying for a Notary that operates their own business and comes with the tax advantages of business owners as well.
It is currently taking the Secretary of State about 5 weeks from the date of the Notary Exam to complete the Notary Commissioning process. During that time, you can begin preparation to start your own Notary business by becoming Certified as a Notary who specializes in Notarizing loan documents. Notaries who specialize in providing services to lenders, escrow companies, title companies and Loan Signing agencies will need to demonstrate to these potential clients that they have become familiar with the unique protocol and documentation specific to Loan Documents.
We have a Loan Signing Certification Class available and you can take that class anytime, but we highly recommend you take that class during the 5-weeks you are waiting for your Commission to arrive.
How to become a certified Loan Signing Notary after you take the Notary class:
Our Loan Signing Class also helps you with starting your own Notary business
Please note: We NEVER, EVER provide a Certified Loan Signing Class on the day of the Notary Class and Exam and we will NEVER do that. To offer a Loan Signing Class immediately after the preparation class for the Notary Exam taking the Notary Exam itself would be unprofessional,
in our opinion- and is absolutely NOT advantageous to those of you who are trusting us to help you with starting a successful loan signing or mobile nnotary business.
Our Certified Loan Signing Classes are always held from 9:00AM - 4:00PM and usually on a Sunday to avoid week-day traffic and work-related schedules for most people. You may choose to take a Loan Signing Class any day after the Notary Exam with us, even the next day if the class is available. We do not believe that taking 2 or 3 hour Loan Signing Class at the end of a day of exam preparation is not to your benefit in any way.
We do offer a Loan Signing Home-Study course as an option, be we highly recommend the Live Class over the Home-Study. In either case, you will take the Certification Exam at home and it is open-book.
Here are the options for taking the Loan Signing Certification Course:
Your Certification exam is always taken at home and is open-book.
