Important Tips​​

Each notarial commission is unique, and a new notarial commission number and expiration date are issued once your application is accepted - ORS 194.063(1)(2)​.

If your commission has expired or will expire before you re-apply online, you are required to take the notary training​. Education is mandatory for new and inactive notaries. There is no grace period for expired commissions.​​
