An approved notary education course is mandatory for all new notary applicants in the State of Florida

First-time notary applicants in Florida must take a required three-hour education course on notary law and procedures (668.50(11)(b), Fla. Stat.). The applicant must submit a Certificate of Completion when sending the application forms to the bonding agency for processing.

The State of Florida offers a free online notary education course that fulfills these requirements and provides the Certificate of Completion necessary in order to apply for a new notary commission.

If you are a new notary applicant, be sure to send your Course Completion Certificate in with your application and bond forms when applying for a new notary commission. Without the Course Completion Certificate from an approved notary education provider, the application forms cannot be processed.
