BACKGROUND CHECKS START NOVEMBER 1, 2019October 31st, 2019
Beginning November 1, 2019, the Lt. Governor’s office will be requiring each person applying for a notary commission to agree to, complete and pass a background check before being commissioned as a notary public.
The process for agreeing and submitting your information for the background check will take place after the notary test has been passed and paid for. The Notary test website will be down from 12 am to 10 am November 1, 2019 to allow for this update.
Please email us at Notary@utah.gov if you have any questions regarding this new law.
