Section 820-6-2-.02 - Examination (Alabama Administrative Code)

§ 820-6-2-.02. Examination

(1) An Alabama Civil-law Notary application shall be valid for a period of one year from the date on which the application was received by the Office of the Secretary of State during which time the applicant must complete the Alabama Civil-law Notary examination. If the applicant completes the examination, with a satisfactory score of 70%, within the one year period prescribed above, the applicant remains eligible for appointment as an Alabama Civil-law Notary even though the appointment itself may occur more than one year after the date on which the application was received.

(2) After reviewing the application for completeness and accuracy of information, determining that all necessary documents accompany the application, and that the applicant meets the requirements of this rule and Act No. 99-449, the Office of the Secretary of State will provide the applicant with a certificate of eligibility to take the Alabama Civil-law Notary examination and a list of examination dates and corresponding examination locations.

(3) The applicant who has been certified as eligible must notify the Office of the Secretary of State at least two weeks in advance of any scheduled examination that the applicant intends to take a scheduled examination. If notice is not received, or if the notice is untimely, the applicant will not be admitted to the examination.

(4) Upon appearing at the examination location, and prior to entering the examination facility, the applicant must present to the examination authorities the certificate of eligibility issued to the applicant by the Office of the Secretary of State, a governmentally issued identification card which bears the applicant's picture, and pay the examination fee.
