How to Become a Notary in Dallas, Texas

Article by NotaryCRM









Do you want to become a notary in Dallas, Texas but don’t know where to start? Sit down, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Follow these simple steps and you’ll be a Notary in no time.

Before we begin, take a look below at the requirements for the state of Texas:

You must be 18 years of ageYou must live in the state of TexasYou must not have been convicted of a felony or a crime involving moral turpitude <em>(in other words, a crime that is against society’s views of justice</em>).Do you fit the requirements? Great! Let’s get started then!

A good place to begin is with an application (Form 2301) to become a Notary in the State of Texas. This form can be printed off of the Texas State Website. You can also pick up an application from the Dallas County Clerk’s office at:

Dallas County ClerkRecords Building 2nd Fl509 Main St., Suite 200,Dallas, TX 75202

Next, if you want to become a Notary, you’re going to need to acquire a ,000 Surety Bond. This bond protects the public from mistakes you may make during your term as notary. Many times, you can obtain a Surety Bond from insurance companies, bond agencies or notary organizations, so a good place to start looking would be the Dallas Yellow Pages or your favorite internet search engine.

After you receive the Surety Bond and the official application (Form 2301), you’re going to need to fill out the application and sign the Surety Bond, and mail them, along with a check or money order for .00 made out to the Secretary of State, to:

Secretary of State of Texas, Notary Public UnitP. O. Box 13375Austin, Texas 78711-3375

When the Secretary of State approves your application you will receive a mailing including your commission, the dates that it’s effective as well as any other instructions, duties and limitations relevant to your position.

Next on your check list is to purchase a couple of essentials – an official Texas Notary Seal of course, and a Texas Notary Journal (to record the details of your position, including name, addresses, dates, services and fees, if any). Both of these items can be purchased at a number of different businesses and websites; a simple search for “Notary Supplies” in your favorite search engine or Dallas Yellow Pages will send you in the right direction.

Lastly, you may want to consider some training classes or seminars. Even though the State of Texas doesn’t require that you attend, we bly encourage it because knowledge is never a bad thing, and the more you know the easier your job will be. Some insurance companies in Dallas and other private businesses offer seminars and training sessions; there are online courses available as well. It’s worth the effort to look into classes such as these; if nothing else than to keep yourself current with the local laws and regulations.

If you’ve followed all the steps, you have your commission in hand, you have your Notary supplies, you are now ready to start your business as a Notary Public in Dallas, Texas! Congratulations! We love to hear success stories, so drop us a note and let us know how it’s going!
