Obtain a Surety Bond:

Notary applicants must provide a surety bond to the State of Nevada in the sum of $10,000 as required by Nevada law. The bond may be obtained from any insurance agency offering surety services or a surety bond agent of your choice. (Check the yellow pages of the telephone directory under “Bonds, Surety” or do an internet search). You specify to the Insurance Company the bond effective date you want.

Once the bond is obtained an oath must be given. The oath can either be administered by the county clerk or another notary.

The surety bond is filed and recorded with the county clerk in the county you reside. If you are applying as a Non-Resident notary that is the county you are employed. Contact your County Clerk for the current fee to file the bond. Click here to view a a listing of Nevada County Clerks.

The county clerk shall immediately certify that the bond and oath have been filed and recorded. The county clerk will return the “Filing Notice” to the notary applicant. THIS FILING NOTICE MUST BE ATTACHED TO YOUR NOTARY APPLICATION.
