You are currently a Florida notary who will be relocating to another state soon and would like to continue working as a notary in the new state. Can you transfer your Florida notary commission to the new state of residence?
The answer is no. Pursuant to Section 117.01(5)(b), Florida Statutes, if you move out of state and change your legal residence, you must resign your notary public commission. You can then apply to become a notary in your new state of residence.
Steps to resigning your Florida notary commission:
- Send a signed letter of resignation to the Governor and return your certificate of notary public commission to:Executive Office of the Governor, Notary Section, The Capitol, Suite 209, 400 S. Monroe St., Tallahassee, FL 32399-0001. You may use Appendix B of the Governor's Manual for the resignation form.
- Destroy your official notary public seal of office, unless the Governor requests its return.
