- Take the exam and be ready to pay the testing ($30) and application ($45) fees. When you receive notification you have passed the notary exam, you must acquire a surety bond. You may purchase a bond through any reliable source including a local insurance agency. For example you may contact Sherry Pace at Moreton & Company (801) 715-7149 or at firstname.lastname@example.org, to obtain a $5,000 bond application. This bond through Moreton & Company must be paid by check and will cost your department a $50 Notary Bond Fee plus a $50 Producer Fee for a total of $100.
- Verify you are a state employee by requesting the bond via email. Once you receive the surety bond, mail it along with the Oath of Office and the Notary Application Score Report to the Notary Office (see above).
- Once the Notary Office has returned, via email, a "Certificate of Authority of Notary Public" print and use this to show proof of commission to order your Official Notary Seal. The seal is required to be in purple ink.
- Note that this procedure is mandated by the Utah Notary Public Office for all new and re-commissioning Notary Publics.
- Renew your notary commission every four years.
