Become a Notary Public or Renew Your Notary Commission: Florida Application is Now Online
Orlando, FL, March 11, 2005: The American Safety Council has launched the first of its kind website where anyone who wishes to become a Florida notary public (or renew their Florida notary commission) can complete their application materials online over the Internet.
The website is located at http://www.FloridaNotaryService.com.
Prior to the launch of the online service, applicants had no choice but to wade through stacks of all too familiar blank forms in order to become a notary. The new application process offers a viable alternative and promises low cost and convenience for the stateÂs 360,000 notaries.
Intuitive clarification of key points regarding notary requirements on the website, as well as real-time customer support through the application process, aid the service in meeting its goal of assisting applicants to complete their materials in the shortest period of time. A prospective notary is thus able to print out completely filled in forms directly from the website in about five minutes.
ÂWe found the fine print on the old paper forms was difficult to read,Â explains Bob Proechel, president of the American Safety Council. ÂAnd deciphering each personÂs handwritten responses was time consuming and caused unnecessary errors and delays,Â he says.
The old way also took longer, as forms were often sent back and forth through the mail or shuffled between desks during processing. The new service minimizes application delays for the notary by cutting the processing time for each application while simultaneously reducing the possibility for error. The result is a faster turn-around time for Florida notary applicants.
The service can also be used for notary renewals. A Florida notary public must renew their notary commission every four years in order to keep their status current. There are some 10,000 notary renewals per month in Florida.
The cost for the online service is $99, which includes the required state filing fee, notary bond, self-inking stamp, log book, and online access to additional resources.
The American Safety Council and its affiliated organizations have provided education courses, traffic safety training, and continuing education in association with state regulatory agencies and court systems for more than ten years.
