Steps to Become a Notary in Nevada

To become a notary public in Nevada, make sure you meet the eligibility requirements listed above and then complete the seven steps listed below:

Step 1- Order a four-year, $10,000 Nevada notary bond

Nevada requires all notary applicants to obtain a four-year, $10,000 notary bond before applying for a notary appointment. The notary bond protects the public from unintentional notary's errors and omissions. For your protection, our Nevada notary bonds include a complimentary $10,000 errors and omissions policy at no additional charge. The notary bond is available for download immediately upon checkout.

Step 2- Obtain a filing notice

Go to the county clerk's office in the county in which you reside to file your notary bond, take the oath of office, and obtain a filing notice. Nonresident applicants can obtain their filing notice in the county in which they maintain a place of business or are employed.

Step 3- Complete the notary training and pass the notary exam

Enroll in the State of Nevada Notary Public Course.  After successfully passing the course, take and pass the State of Nevada Notary Public Commission Exam. There is a $45 notary exam fee you must pay when submitting your notary application. If you fail the notary exam, you will have to wait 24 hours before registering for the exam again.

Step 4- Complete an application for appointment

Create an account on the Nevada Secretary of State’s business portal (SilverFlume) to complete an application for appointment. Once you have filled out the application, print it and sign it and save it as a PDF file.

Step 5- Upload the required documents

Upload a PDF file of your filing notice, training certificate, and signed notary application for appointment to your SilverFlume account and pay the $35 application fee and the $45 training course fee.

Step 6- Purchase Nevada notary supplies

At a minimum, you will need a Nevada notary stamp and a notary journal to perform your notarial duties. Save up to 40% on Nevada notary supplies. Click here to order a Nevada notary package that includes your notary bond and notary supplies.
