Six Simple Steps to Renew Your Arkansas Notary Commission


  1. Order your ten-year, $7,500 Arkansas notary bond from the American Association of Notaries.

    Save time! No need to wait days to receive your notary bond to renew your Arkansas notary commission. You can now order the notary bond online, 24/7, and download it instantly upon checkout. You will need the information listed on the notary bond to complete the notary renewal application on the Arkansas Secretary of Office website.  Click on the button below to order the notary bond. We will guide you step by step through the notary renewal application process.

  2. Review the Arkansas notary law

    All Arkansas notary public applicants are required to review and understand the Arkansas notary laws and pass a test administered by the Arkansas Secretary of State. Reading the Arkansas Notary Handbook will help you understand the duties and powers of a notary as well as prohibited acts. The handbook will also equip you to pass the notary exam.

  3. Complete and print the Arkansas notary renewal application on the Arkansas Secretary of State’s website.

    You will need some of the information listed on the notary bond to start the Arkansas notary renewal application process. You will be asked to enter your name as listed on the notary bond, the bonding agency name, and the bond effective date. Once you purchase the notary bond, follow the steps below to complete the notary renewal application:

      1. Go to the Arkansas Secretary of State’s website.
      2. Click on “Create an account” or log in to your account.
      3. Click on the “Notary” tab in the menu on the top and select “Notary Public Renewal.”
      4. Take the notary exam administered by the Arkansas Secretary of State.
      5. Complete and print the Arkansas notary renewal application.
      6. Complete and sign the affidavit section of the application before a notary public.
      7. Mail the completed notary application, the notary bond that you downloaded upon checkout, and the $20.00 filing fee to the State.
  4. Take the oath of office before a clerk at the county's recorder of deeds.

    Two to four weeks after you mail in your Arkansas notary renewal application, the State will send you two sets of oath of commission certificates in the mail. Take them, along with the original notary bond, to the county's recorder of deeds in your county of commission. Sign the forms and take the oath of office before a clerk. There will be a separate fee paid to the county for this filing. Return one of the signed oath of commission certificates to the Secretary of State's Office. The state will then mail you a notary public identification card and certificate of commission. Your commission is not valid until you file the completed oath of commission with both the county recorder of deeds and the Secretary of State.
