What is a California Notary Public Bond?

AmeriPro Surety Bonds| 844-589-9732

The California notary public bond is a $15,000 surety bond. The bond is an “Instant Issue” bond. This means that there is no underwriting nor a credit check involved in its purchase.  Once purchased, only the original, signed copy of your notary bond can be filed with your local county office, not an emailed copy or printed copy of the bond. Please call our agency today at 844-589-9732.

Until further notice:  We are not offering special delivery (i.e. overnight) delivery of the California notary bond. 

California Notary Bond


A notary bond is a bond that is required by the state of California to engage in the business of witnessing signatures on documents.  Notaries exist primarily as a deterrent to potential acts of fraud.  The notary bond, besides being required, allows you to operate anywhere within the state of California.  California notaries fall under the jurisdiction of the California Secretary of State.

So what is a notary bond, exactly?

A notary bond is a surety policy which protects others, — the public — from acts of fraud, criminal misconduct, or malfeasance in their duties as a notary.  This surety bond exists solely for the protection of the public; it does not protect the notary at all.

The bond’s existence allows for persons who suffer harm due to the wrongful acts of a notary to file a claim on the bond to recover damages up to the bond’s $15,000 amount.  Were a claim to be paid on the surety bond, it is the responsibility of the licensed notary to reimburse the surety for all costs involved.




Preparing for the Notary Exam



Applicants for the notary bond may want to consider having a “leg up”, even before taking the notary course — if they choose to do so in the class.  The 2019 California notary public handbook can be a helpful guide; however, you may wish to do an online search for any updated editions.
