How to use the Notary On-Line Video Course
and take your notary exam at our location
Completing the course and registering for your exam   Taking the examination
Both the 6-hr and the 3-hr video courses are California State approved and taking them will satisfy your notary educational requirements. There is no requirement to attend an in-person seminar. CPS You will be taking the notary exam in the same classroom that we held the seminar that day so there is no need to contact the Secretary of State. We have already done that for you when you registered for the examination.

The exam consists of 30 question, multiple choice and you will have 50 minutes to complete the exam. Passing score is 70% and will be sent to you by email within 15-20 business days.
Watch the videos from your computer in any order you like. We do not track time or require that you complete a video  before changing to another video topic. There are a total of 18 videos for each course. The 3-hour course has the same content as the 6-hour course but we have edited out the discussions included in the 6-hour course which were designed for concept clarity.   When you arrive for your exam, you must present an actual hard copy of your exam registration and Proof of Completion that is provided to you from our staff. Electronic copies will not be sufficient. We do not accept walk-in candidates for the notary examination. If you do not have the exam registration confirmation for that specific day and that location, or a Proof of Completion, you will not be permitted to take the exam with us.
Once you have spent the required amount of time in study (6-hrs or 3-hrs) , print out the 6-hour Video Course Affidavit or the 3-hour Video Course Affidavit.   The Secretary of State charges $40 to process your examination and notary application. You will need to bring a check or money order ($40) made payable to the Secretary of State.
You will need to send us the completed and signed Registration and Affidavit forms. You can send them by E-mail, Fax or by regular mail.

If you do not have a scanner, simply take a photo of both completed forms and send the pictures to us.

  If you are taking your exam on that day, and you have your exam registration form, you may then choose to stay with us during the rest of the day in the seminar room at no charge or come back at 3:45 PM for the exam only.

not provide a 3-hour Proof of Completion for the seminar. You must already have your Proof of Completion of the Video Course or the Home Study Course with you.
