Step 2: Receive your commission and obtain your official surety bond.

Your commission will be valid for four (4) years. If corrections are needed, the application will be returned along with a letter of explanation. Upon receipt of your commission, a notary seal will need to be purchased and a bond obtained.
New and Renewing Notary Packages
Renewing Notary Packages do not come with a notary journal
Our New and Renewal Notary Packages DO NOT include your required $1,000 Oklahoma Notary Bond. The State of Oklahoma requires purchasing your notary bond, which you will need to send along with your notary application.
Please visit The Notary's Store you will be entering the Oklahoma section for your official notary supplies. We offer a New Notary Supply Package and a Renewing Notary Supply Package which include your required Oklahoma Notary Seal/Stamp, Oklahoma Notary Journal, and other needed notary supplies at a special reduced price, but you will need to order your required $1,000 Oklahoma Notary Bond separately. To order, enter the required information and scroll down through the page to locate the notary packages, or you can purchase your notary supplies separately. Follow the instructions through checkout. Once you have your official bond you may proceed with step 3.
Note: An Errors and Omissions Insurance Policy does not replace a bond, but will help to repay the bonding company if a claim is ever made. Errors and Omissions is not required by law, but may be purchased as it protects the notary public and pays for any charges the notary might owe for legal fees and costs should the notary be sued.
Step 3: File your Oath of Office, Loyalty Oath and Surety Bond with the Secretary of State's office
Once you receive your official surety bond from The Notary's Store, make a copy of the actual bond for your records. Before a person may act as a notary, he/she must file a $1,000.00 surety bond dated the same as the notary commission, an oath of office, loyalty oath and a $10.00 filing fee with the Office of the Secretary of State. Filing questions about the notary bond should be directed to the Secretary of State's office.
