Need a Notary to Notarize

Licensing Applications


Notarization requirements for licensing applications vary by state and licensing agency. In general, most licensing applications don't require a notary. However, there are some exceptions, such as:

  • Applications involving sworn statements:  If the application includes a section where you swear to the truthfulness of the information provided, a notary may be required. This is because a notary public is a neutral third party who verifies your identity and witnesses your signature.

  • Certain professional licenses:  Some states may require notarization for applications for specific professional licenses, such as those for lawyers, doctors, or teachers.

Here are some resources that can help you determine if your specific licensing application needs to be notarized:

  • The agency's website usually has information about the application process, including any notary requirements.

  • The office of the Secretary of State: The Secretary of State's office can provide information about notary public laws in your state.

If you're unsure whether your application needs to be notarized, it's always best to err on the side of caution and get it notarized. This will help ensure that your application is complete and processed without any delays.
