Requirements: What is Proof of Identity

So, what’s considered an “acceptable” form of identification when seeking the services of a notary public?

Every signer must show valid (not expired) government issued photo identification. All identification must contain a photo, a physical description, a signature and a serial number. (e.g. an official passport or a state-issued driver’s license or state-issued identification card). Copies of IDs are not acceptable.

Checking and verifying the signer’s identify is critical step in performing a notarial service. Some people may view it as a nuisance, but it’s performed to safeguard against fraud. So the next time you need a document notarized, remember to bring one of the accepted forms of identification mentioned above.
