Should I take a 6-hr class or a 3-hr class?

The 6-hr class begins at 9am and the 3-hr class begins at 1pm at the same location. Take the class & exam on the same day. The state exam proctors
arrive at 4:15 pm.

All first-time notary applicants are required to take the 6-hr class. Recommissioning notaries whose commissions have not yet expired may choose to take a 6-hr class or a 3-hr refresher class up to 1-year before their current commission expires and also must take the notary exam.

We offer both the 6-hr class and the 3-hr class at all locations and on all dates.
If your commission has already expired, or you do not take or pass the exam before your current commission expires, you will no longer qualify for the 3-hr course. Please consider taking the entire 6-hr course even if you have recommissioned many times. You will really be glad you did that and the course prices are always the same at $79.95 for either the 6-hr or the 3-hr class.

If you qualify for the 3-hr class, and we cannot twist your arm in taking the 6-hr class, please do know that only the 6-hr class comes with the Pass the Exam Guarantee. To take the 3-hr class, simply pick any date and location and at the check-out prompts, you can change the class at that time to a 3-hr class at no charge. We hope you reconsider...
