Requirements to become a notary in Indiana are that you must be at least 18 years of age, and must be a resident of Indiana. You may not have been convicted of a crime that involved a sentence greater than 6 months, and you may not hold a “lucrative” office or appointment at the state level in Indiana or in the U.S. government. School, city, town, or civil officials may be Illinois notaries.
To become an Indiana notary, you must complete and sign your application online at the Secretary of State’s website. You also take your oath of office online, and pay a $5 application fee. In addition, you must obtain a surety bond in the amount of $5000. In Indiana, this may be done in the form of a Freehold, which means that an individual other than the notary sets forth the $5000 in the form of real property.
In Indiana, there is no education requirement to become a notary and no exam. Once you have received your certificate of appointment, you may purchase a seal press or rubber stamp and begin notarizing signatures. The term of your Indiana notary commission is 8 years. The fee for most notarial acts is $2
