Become a Louisiana Notary Public
An applicant may fill out a Louisiana notary "Application Qualify" which requires the applicant to attest 
to good moral character and be registered to vote in the Parish they are applying in.  They must be a 
citizen or resident alien of the state.  Next, the applicant may apply to take the Louisiana notary exam 
by filling out the examination registration form.  The two application forms must be submitted at least 
sixty days prior to taking the Louisiana notary examination.  An oath of office is required.  An official 
signature, a $10,000 Louisiana notary bond or Errors and Omissions insurance, and a $35 commission 
filing fee is required.

Applicants must pass the state notary examination unless they are a licensed attorney in Louisiana.  
The exam is given twice a year on the first Saturday in June and December only.  You must fill out an 
examination registration form before taking the exam.  You must submit this at least forty-five days 
prior to the exam.  Forms can be filed by mail, email, or fax.  No course is required for you to take the 
Louisiana notary examination.  However, it's a good idea to take a course or participate in a study group.  
Please visit the Secretary of State's site to find a list of registered and bonded Louisiana notary exam 
prep course providers.  Once you are commissioned, you are commissioned for life.
