I know that the Louisiana notary exam can be an overwhelming experience. So many people have had to take this exam more than once - some more than three times before successful passage. Why is this test so hard?
Did you know that the Louisiana notary test is the HARDEST in the country? This is because, unlike any other notary in the United States, the Louisiana notary is vested with some of the same rights, privileges, authority and obligations as attorneys. We are considered "non-attorney" notaries. Before I go any further, I have to place in this little BLURB:
NOT ALL ATTORNEYS ARE NOTARIES.
It is extremely important that we are knowledgeable in Louisiana law in order to provide, you, our customer, with the best possible service. So, the question is: "Can You Pass the Test?"
Of course you can pass the test. But you must put in the time it takes to study the material. This is definitely a test that you can't CRAM for. This is definitely a test that resting upon memorization of terms will NOT ensure passage. You have to KNOW the material. Point blank!!
It is important that you take some sort of course to prepare for the exam, especially if you do not have legal background. Some of these courses are rather expensive. Some "notaries in training" have opted for study groups, which are really good as you receive more hands-on, one-on-one time to have questions answered.
Assigned Signers offers a study group wherein questions are answered and real-life scenarios are played out. You will leave this study session with confidence that you have been prepared to not only TAKE the Louisiana Notary Exam, but to also PASS it!!!
The Louisiana notary exam consists of two parts:
Remember, if this is something you want BADLY enough, you can do it!!! It won't come easy but once you have passed the test, you are a Louisiana Civil Law Notary, commissioned for LIFE!!!
It only takes time, persistence, discipline, prayer, and lots of hard work.
BUT IT'S WORTH IT!!! BECOME A NOTARY!!!!
