Upon completion of the course each enrolled student will receive a Certificate of Completion download to show proof that he or she is well-versed in California notary law and practices and has successfully fulfilled the required 3-hour course for renewals or the 6-hour course for new notaries or notary renewals that have expired or will expire prior to taking the California notary exam.

    I took the course the two weeks prior to my exam date. Being able to read the material and then reinforce that information with the video, which added additional points of knowledge, really helped me grasp the information well and taking the test was a breeze, even at 9.5 months pregnant. I scored a 92! Thank you so very much 🙂

    I definitely recommend this training center for your Notary prepping!!!
    It by far answered all my many questions before I even needed to ask. I was just in all my thoughts! There are so many questions and concerns when beginning this process…However, they are all taken care of with this very easy to use training site! Videos are great to listen to while driving in the car, kinda like a podcast! It’s amazing! Again… I definitely recommend!!!

    I highly recommend THIS course over any of the other 5 that showed up for my county. The information was very easily presented and the test was amazing. I was thankful to be able to go over everything and see what I missed and to do the test again. I’m looking forward to the process being over and working! Thank you so much! and nobody else!

    Straightforward and easy to get through all necessary information. Andy narrates the class as if he is sitting across from you. After taking my exam, I feel the sample quiz is very indicative of what you will find on the exam.

    Great information, excellent format/presentation. Straightforward, easy to follow. Professional Instructor, comprehensive curriculum. I think a mock test should be considered.

    Overall Great! Convenience and information is all there. One bit of feedback – on actually taking the Notary Exam questions were phrased much differently than on the final quiz. Examples in this course’s Quiz were several “Which of the following” or “What best describes” whereas on the actual test the questions were more examples – “John is A. John does B. Is John at fault”, “Jane becomes a notary. What will Jane need to do X?” – This threw me off on the actual test and I would recommend updating or incorporating this into the Final Quiz. I really can’t complain too much about this because the course was otherwise a great experience! Thank you!

    The video was insightful and helpful. I had never studied notary law before and using this simple and affordable online system I was able to pass my CA Notary exam on the first try. I definitely suggest printing the work book out that was the real key to my success. Thank you Andy and to everyone at

    I found this video series entertaining and full of great knowledge. Andy’s quirky sense of humor helped to quell the boring nature of civic law being presented. My test is scheduled for March 16th, 2021 and I feel confident that Andy’s video series have provided me with all the information I need to pass the test. 🙂
    Next up for me is the loan signing course 🙂

    With Love,

    Andy was great! He took some pretty dry material and made the course easy to get through. Great focus on the necessary concepts, good use of humor, and very easy to follow. I was not looking forward to slogging through this, but it was totally doable. Great organization of materials and steps on the site as well.

    Great course. The instructor was easy to listen to, and made the information easy to understand. Make sure you read through everything and you will do just fine.

    Good course–I enjoyed the little bits of dry humour, made it easier to get through. Make sure to especially review the fees and penalties section as this information comes toward the end of the course but the “real” test focused quite a bit on it. I passed the test although I did not score as well as I did on the practice exams. But passing is passing–just pay attention, do a little bit of extra studying, and you should be good to go 🙂

    This Notary course was terrific. Easy to understand and learn. Exams were backlogged so I had to wait 3 months to take it but I just went back and did a quick refresher and passed the exam! Highly recommend!

    I took this course the day before I took the test. So, how’d I do on the test?No idea if I passed or failed, as I’m still awaiting my score. However I did feel confident; Andy actually says (in these videos) what’s going to be on the test and sure enough, he wasn’t fooling around. I feel as if I passed, who knows- when I do I’ll post that too or update this review.

    I’ll say/write this… you won’t fall asleep watching, as Andy’s somewhat animated and entertaining! All in all Andy’s very informative and after this course I feel as if this isn’t just informative but necessary if you want to be a notary public … here in CA anyway.

    I highly recommend Andy and this course; once you go through it I believe you’re going to feel the same-= the info in Andy’s course is vital to passing the test, and working as a notary public. 🙂

    I passed the State of California exam! I credit taking’s course to get me there. I printed the Notary.Net course out and followed along with Andy’s videos, making notes on the print out. I studied and studied and ended up with a 92 on the State exam. Thanks for getting me there!

    I have worked with Andy Johnson for over 15 years. I hate to “re-take” the Notary course, however….each time I take it I realize how much I FORGET over the previous 4 years!!!
    I am so thankful to the Johnson family for their continued support of the Notary “community”!
    I took the Loan Signing Course through the Johnsons,( and I have been a Certified Loan Signing Agent for over 15 years as well.
    Both courses provide the knowledge needed to pass the Notary exam and the Loan Signing Exam.
    Thanks Andy!!!

    Great course whether you are a first time appointee or renewing notary. All of the information you need to pass the state exam is laid out and simplified in this course. I appreciated the side notes and the personal context added in the videos helped me to associate exam questions with the correct answers by remembering the funny antidotes used in relation to the specific subjects. Notary.Net has always been my go-to for notary renewal training and supplies. Beyond Grade A customer service, as the instructor is personally and easily accessible. They offer a variety of supplies to fit every notary need, and are quick and prompt in delivering orders. It’s all of this that keeps me coming back. Thank you Notary.Net
