There are step by step guides for this procedure based on what state you live in. Start there maybe under Google.

Hi, @mychal!

It so happens I wrote an in-depth guide to becoming a Notary Public. You can learn more about the general requirements and possible state exams here:…-to-become-a-notary/

In addition to the basic requirements, it includes tips on how to use the notary commission to make money. I highly recommend finding a niche, as General Notary Work (GNW) is provided at UPS stores, and many banks provide free notary services to their members/customers.
