Oklahoma Notary Fees
Become an Oklahoma notary public
A notary term of office in Oklahoma is four years. Applicants must be at least eighteen years old.
You must be a citizen of the United States and either work or live within the state of Oklahoma.
There is a $25 fee to be paid with the application. Notaries must also have a $1000 surety bond,
and pay a $10 filing fee for filing the bond with the notary department. Each notary must have a
notarial seal containing the notary's name, the words "State of Oklahoma " and "Notary Public". The
seal may be either a metal seal which leaves an embossed impression or a rubber stamp. The expiration
date and commission number may be part of the stamp or seal. Notaries are not required to keep
records, but it is recommended that you keep a journal to record all of your notarial acts such as
the date of the act, the type of notariation performed, type of document and description of the
document, documentation of the identification of the signer, place of the notarization ( address ),
fees charged, and any notes. If there is anything unusual about the setting or the signer, it is a
prudent idea to note that.
The notary commission for Oklahoma will list the notary's name, commission number, city / county of
residence or comployment, a commission date, and an expiration date. Keep your official notary
commission in your records. Renewal notices are not sent by mail. Its the responsibility of the
individual notary to keep track of when they need to renew. The renewal application may not be
submitted earlier than six weeks before the commission's expiration date. For your new notary
commission, you also need a new notary bond that is filed with the secretary of state.
