As one of the requirements to receive or renew a notary public commission, each applicant must satisfactorily pass a proctored closed book written examination prescribed by the California Secretary of State.

The State Exam is a 30-question multiple choice test with a 50-minute time limit. A score of 70 points out of 100 is passing.

In addition, each candidate is required to present a separate check or money order made payable to "Secretary of State" in the amount of $40 or $20 for re-take.

Both our Live Seminar and Online Self-Study students may take the State Exam after our regularly scheduled Live Seminars as part of the cost of the course.
