How to Become a Nevada Notary if you are a Resident of Nevada
To become a notary in the state, you must:
(1) be a U.S. citizen or a lawfully admitted permanent resident;
(2) be at least 18 years of age;
(3) be a resident of the state;
(4) possess your civil rights (a felon cannot be a notary); and
(5) have never had your notary commission revoked in another state. You must attend a 3-hour online notary training class through the Secretary of State’s Notary Division and pass an exam. You must also enter into a bond to the State of Nevada in the sum of $10,000. The bond is filed with the county clerk of the county in which you reside. You are then given your oath of public office and the clerk gives you a filing notice. You must submit a notary application, filing notice, certificate of online course completion and an application fee of $35 to the Secretary of State. The Secretary of State will then issue a Certificate of Appointment.
Each notary must obtain a stamp for authenticating notarial acts. You will need a certified copy of your Certificate of Appointment to obtain a notary stamp. You must also maintain a journal of all transactions. Your application remains on file with the Secretary of State.
