Here are the answers.

The notary exam can be difficult if you do not take enough time to prepare. This is not the exam you took four years ago. Regardless of how long you have been a notary, you may have selected wrong answers here. There are 30 questions on the exam, most of which are not about things that we do every day. We cover everything in our live seminar in a really fun and intetesting way. The online notary course is free anyway if you are registering to take the seminar with us. Give yourself a big break...don't do this on your own. Let us help. Take the 6-hour class and be relaxed and ready for the exam the first time around.

  • If a notary completes a notary act on a document when the notary knows the document contains false information, the notary has committed a Misdemeanor unless the document is a Deed of Trust or Real Estate Document, then it is a felony.
  • If a notary is requested to notarize a vital statistic record, the notary should ask the client whether they want to use an Ackowledgment or Jurat False. Notaries are not allowed to notarize vital statistic documents at all...ever.
  • A notary has 15 business days to send a certified copy of the journal records when requested by the Secretary of State. The correct answer is 30 calendar days. If a notary receives a request from the public to send journal record copies, they have 15 business days to comply.
  • If a document requires that the notary to complete an Acknowledgment, and if the principal has signed and filled in the date of signature before bringing it to the notary, the notary should have them resign at the time of notarization. No. A document requiring an Acknowledgment should not be resigned or the signature re-dated, rather the signer must "acknowledge" to the notary through communication that they have signed the document. It does not need to be re-signed in the notary's presence.
  • Failure to complete and sign the notarial certificate in the presence of the signer is subject to what fine amount? $750. It is not likely that you know all of the possible fines and penalties for notaries and any of them can be on the exam. We go through fine amounts all day long, beginning in the morning and all the way through to make the most difficult part of the exam a whole lot easier.
  • CA Notaries are always required to use CA Acknowledgment Certificates for an out-of-state documents. False. California notaries are permitted to use an out-of-state acknowledgment as long as the wording does not require a notary in CA to do anyting illegal. False)
  • CA Notaries must always ensure that documents requiring Jurats use proper California Jurat wording, unless being returned to another country. False. CA notaries are NOT allowed to use any other Jurat form than California's Jurat.

If your current commission is still valid, you may choose to take the 6-hr class or the 3-hour notary class. If your commission has already expired or will expire before you take the exam, you must take a 6-hour class. All applicants seeking a first-time commission in California must take a 6-hour class.

I want to take the online notary course but may decide later to change it for the seminar at no extra charge. I understand that the SOS charges $40 on the day of the exam which must be in the form of a check or money order.
