All persons desiring to become a Notary Public, or those desiring to renew their commissions as Notary Public, shall secure an informational packet from the Clerk of Courts which contains an Application and Examination for Certification, and a copy of the Revised Code of Ohio Governing Notaries Public.
Upon completion of the Application and Examination, applicants shall schedule an appointment with the Court Administrator or Deputy Court Administrator for review of the Examination. A score of ninety percent or better is required for passing. Upon obtaining a passing grade, the Court Administrator will complete the necessary paperwork for approval of the Notary Public Commission and submit same to the Judge for signature. The paperwork will then be forwarded to the Clerk of Courts for submission to the State of Ohio Notary Commission.
When you received your notary certificate in the mail from the State of Ohio Notary Commission, you shall file and record it with the Clerk of Courts Legal Office before notarizing documents.
