Getting Started

The very first step, of course, is to become a Notary Public in your state. All the details for that process are covered in the Basic Notary Public section of this website.

This is definitely a business you can start on a shoestring. Besides your car you really only need your Notary stamp, journal, thumbprinter, and a pen. And some states don't even require all of that!

You'll likely want to carry a briefcase with a few extra items as well. If you do loan signings it's nice to carry the loan package in a briefcase or bag of some sort. Loan packages are usually on legal-sized paper, so make sure the briefcase you choose is wide enough for the paperwork.

It's also a good idea to carry extra blank Acknowledgment and Jurat forms (the actual Notary certificates you will be signing and stamping). Especially when you're new you should include your state's Official Notary Handbook in case something comes up that you need to look up or defend. For instance, if someone insists that you should notarize something that you can't, you can show them the law right in the book. Have enough pens for all signers, a mini stapler, your cell phone, and a bottle of water. You'll also need invoices or a receipt pad, and your business cards.

Not long ago I needed a Notary to sign my own loan package. He showed up at the door with only his Notary stamp, thumbprinter and journal in hand. I even provided the pen! We had everything we needed.

PLEASE NOTE: You don't have to be a Notary Public to train for this career and become certified, so you can start training immediately. However, you do need to become a Notary Public before you can actually perform notarized loan signings. Becoming a Notary Public for your state is independent of this course. Also, most states allow loan signing agents to assist in closing loans, but not all of them do. Before you order this course, be sure to check and see if your state allows loan signing agents to assist in closing loans. Go to the state links for instructions on how to become a Notary Public in your state.
