Notary Public Registration

This online service will allow you to submit either a new or renewal application to become a notary public, check the status of an application and search for active notaries. For more information, please access the Notary Public Manual.

New Notary Applicant Process

  1. Review the NJ Notary Public Manual
  2. Complete the Notary Commissioning Application (Attorneys: Please skip to step 4)
  3. Take & Pass the Notary Public Exam
  4. Complete your Notary Registration Application

If you are an active Notary Public and need to renew, you are NOT required to take the Notary Public Exam and are only required to submit your Notary Renewal Application.

If it has been over 30 days since your Notary Commission has expired, you will be considered a New Notary Applicant & be required to take the Notary Public Exam.

Please Note: A1423: A notary public who is not licensed as an attorney-at- law shall not use or advertise the title of lawyer or attorney-at-Law. A Notary who advertises his services must provide a statement "I am not an attorney licensed to practice law and may not give legal advice about immigration or any other legal matter or accept fees for legal advice."
