How to Become a Notary in Texas:

Compared to other states, Texas has few eligibility requirements to become a notary. The process to become a notary is simple and affordable (only $89.95) for a four-year Texas notary term. To become a notary in Texas, you must be:

  • 18 years of age or older
  • A legal resident of the State of Texas
  • Have no felony convictions or a crime involving moral turpitude.

Follow the steps below to become a notary in Texas:

  1. Complete a Texas notary application on our website (or print and mail it to us). Our Texas notary application wizard will guide you step-by-step through the notary application process. You also have the option to e-sign the application online(eliminating the need to print and mail your notary application). For faster approval, we file all Texas notary applications electronically with the Texas Secretary of State.

  2. Purchase a four-year $10,000 notary bond (required by Texas law). This bond protects the public from errors made by the notary. You can purchase the bond while completing the online application process. The cost of the bond is only $50.00 for a four-year term.

  3. Purchase a notary stamp and a notary journal to authenticate and record notarized documents (required by Texas notary law). All our Texas notary stamps and seals are made in house and come with a life-time warranty. No questions asked! We will ship your notary supplies once we receive confirmation from the state that you are approved as a Texas notary.

  4. Take the oath of office before a notary. Once your notary application is approved, the Texas Secretary of State will supply you with the oath of office form. Take the oath of office before another notary and keep the form in your records. The whole notary application process takes around seven to fourteen working days if the information on the notary application is completed correctly.
