Notary Public Review Workshop - Prepare for the NYS Exam
This workshop prepares you for the New York State Notary Public test and will provide you with a comprehensive overview of the notary public’s role.

This workshop is a must for candidates who want to become fully aware of the authority, duties and responsibilities involved in becoming a notary. All materials will be provided, including website information, booklets and forms. Also featured is an 80-question practice exam that attempts to emulate the actual New York State mandatory exam.
