3 Hour State Approved Course By State Of California- For Renewing Commissions
If your California Notary Public commission is approaching expiration, it is advisable to consider the 6 hour training course for renewal. Opting for the 3 hour course may lead to challenges, as the state’s exam is offered once a month in many counties and only once every six months in some. If you initially choose the 3 hour class but run out of time, we gladly offer a free transition to the six-hour course within your paid access period. However, restarting is necessary due to additional content and time-tracking requirements.
To avoid any breaks between notary public terms, the state recommends taking the California Notary Public exam at least six months before your current commission expires. Meeting all application requirements ensures the issuance of the new commission 30 days prior to the expiration date.
Given these considerations, it is strongly recommended to opt for the 6 hour course if your commission is expiring in less than six months.
