Frequently Asked Questions
How long does it take to become a Florida notary public?
Upon receiving your completed paperwork, Troy Fain Insurance will hand-deliver your application to the State of Florida. The Secretary of State's commission process takes approximately three business days for most applications.* Once we receive your commission information from the state, your certificate and products will be mailed within three business days.
*Applicants that have been convicted of a felony or had an adjudication of guilt withheld for a felony offense, disciplined by a regulatory agency, or had a professional license revoked must have their application formally reviewed by the Governor’s office to determine the eligibility to become a notary public. Since the reviews are performed on an individual basis, approval times may vary.
