Become a Michigan Notary Public

As a notary public in the State of Michigan, you have UNLIMITED financial liability on EVERY document you notarize. If you are a notary for your employer, your employer could also be held liable for your mistakes. All too often people take the office of Notary Public lightly, which is a huge mistake. Even though your state does not require education, it could keep you out of trouble. The Michigan Online Notary Course is the fastest and easiest way for you to learn what to do and what not to do and how to protect yourself as a notary. Whether you are a new or current notary public in Michigan, you should spend some time learning the laws. The cost of this course is much less expensive than just 1 hour consulting an attorney.

The Michigan Online Notary Course includes:
  • 2+ Hours of Streaming Video
  • 3 Months of Unlimited Access
  • Asset Protection Information
  • Michigan Training Manual (PDF)
  • Michigan State Handbook (PDF)

   How to Become an Michigan Notary Public
  1. Complete the Online Michigan Notary Training Course
  2. Your Application for Michigan Notary Public Appointment must include your driver's license number, full name as you wish to be appointed, date of birth, residential address (as it appears on your Michigan driver's license or personal identification card), business address, telephone number, and, if a current notary, information about your current appointment. This form is available by selecting the following Application for Notary Public Commission.
  3. To ensure that your appointment is accurately made without delay, please print or type your name as you wish to be commissioned to the right of the "Commissioned Name" field at the bottom of the application. Your signature must match the name that has been printed as your "Commissioned Name." This is the signature that you will use when notarizing documents.
  4. To avoid delays in processing your notary public application, please be advised that your current address must match on both the application and your driver's license or personal identification card that you have on file with the Secretary of State. You may submit a change of address for your driver's license or personal identification card at any Secretary of State branch office or by mail. There is no fee for this service. To obtain a change of address form, please select the following Michigan Change of Address/Voter Registration.
  5. You must obtain a surety bond (available through insurance agencies or bonding companies) in the amount of $10,000 and file it with your respective county clerk. The fee for filing at the county is $10.00 (with the exception of Wayne County, which may be more). At that time, the county clerk will also administer an Oath of Office, and verify that you have complied with these requirements by completing the designated area on your completed Notary Public Application. Your original signature must then be placed on the form, agreeing to all conditions stated.
  6. Once you have fulfilled the filing requirements at the county level, you must forward your completed application (with a $10.00 non-refundable processing fee) to the following address:
  7. Michigan Department of State
    Office of the Great Seal
    7064 Crowner Blvd.
