What We Do

The North Carolina Department of the Secretary of State Notary Public Section regulates and defines North Carolina Notary Public policy; it educates, tests, qualifies and commissions notaries public. North Carolina Notaries Public facilitate commerce when they perform the following notarial acts:

  • Acknowledge signatures
  • Administer oaths and affirmations
  • Verify or prove signatures.

The Departments of the Secretary of State and Community Colleges implement a Notary Public Education Program to assure notaries comply with the law and deliver quality notary service. The Secretary of State educates the Notary Instructors who teach in the Community Colleges. The program educates notaries about legal, ethical and procedural requirements of notarial acts. North Carolina, the first state to do so, began notary training in 1983; several other states formally train notaries. North Carolina remains in the vanguard of Notary Public education, testing, regulation and practice.
