Notary commissions are issued through the Clerk of Superior Court. Information about becoming a Notary Public and applicable laws are available in the Superior Court Clerks’ Cooperative Authority online Notary & Apostilles information section.
New & Renewal Applications
You must apply in the county in which you reside. (The ONLY exception is if you are a non-resident of Camden County residing in a bordering state AND you are employed in Georgia.)
When applying for a new Notary Commission, the endorsers cannot be related to the applicant, must live in Camden County and provide a residential address, and must sign the application.
Please go to GSCCA Notary Application Portal to complete an application. Completed applications should be brought to this office for processing within 30 days of the online entry. Applications not processed within 30 days will be deleted from the online system.
Please bring in a valid driver's license. Make sure that the address on the application matches the address on your license. Should the addresses not match, you must provide a utility bill or other document that shows your name and current address.
Renewal applications must be processed PRIOR TO EXPIRATION of an existing, active Camden County notary commission.
Georgia does not require mandatory training; however, a free web-based training course is highly recommended and available through the Georgia Superior Court Clerks' Cooperative Authority (GSCCCA). This online course explains Georgia notary law, and presents basic notary procedures. This course is not required in order to receive a commission.
Special Instructions For Renewals By Mail
Please remember, we cannot process a renewal application any sooner than 30 days prior to expiration, nor can we process the application if the commission has already expired. Any renewal packets received in this office after the expiration date will be rejected.
When completing the application packet online with the GSCCCA, please follow all instructions carefully. Failure to do so could cause your application to be rejected.
Payment information will be entered during the application process at the GSCCCA website. GSCCCA will not charge your credit card until your application is processed and accepted in this Clerk's Office. In the event of a Card Error message during processing, we must reject the application packet back to you in the mail without processing. You would then need to complete another application.
A Renewal Application By Mail that includes a name change cannot be processed unless proof of the name change is provided.
