I found out that many Notaries cheated on our certification test over the years. Some had others take it for them while others memorized answers. So, I have to give all 1600 of my certified Notaries a pop quiz to make sure they know their stuff and didn't cheat. Unfortunately roughly half either cheated or forgot most of what they are supposed to know and the other half are not perfect either.

What bothers me much worse is that the attitude in this industry has gone from bad to worse. It is only about 5% of Notaries that have a good attitude. A good Notary cares about what he/she does, cares about attaining the necessary knowledge, cares about keeping good records, proper identification, taking Oaths correctly, and upholding the law.

With the quanity of bad Notaries out there, we might as well not have Notaries. Or in my opinion, get rid of 98% and keep the good 2%, train them better and pay them quadruple. Good people avoid this profession as it doesn't pay well. But, the public pays the price every time they get a bad Notary who doesn't give a damn about what they are doing.

I'm fed up and I'm going to write to many of the state governments and see if something can be done. CA is moving in the right direction but is still not good enough. The other states are pathetic and should have their Notary divisions shut down. Donald Trump might be able to Federalize the Notary industry and give us some basic but necessary good standards since the states refuse to function as adults.
