Be Prepared For Your Mobile Notary Appointment – Acceptable ID:
With any signing, there are multiple documents that require a notary to confirm the signer is properly identified. When you prepare to have your documents notarized, it is important to understand that a notary is required to follow exact requirements when performing a notarization.
Being prepared will make the document signing appointment more efficient. Below you will find a list of acceptable forms of identification along with a list of the most common unapproved identification. If a signer is not able to produce valid identification, the signer may be able to provide credible witnesses.

Things to Note – Name Change
If your name has changed or it will change by the time you are ready to have documents notarized, be sure to have the proper identification to support the new name.
The notary is required to make certain that the requested signer signs the same name that is on the Identification presented. The only exception, is if the identification has more detail than the document has, such as an abbreviation for a middle name. As an example, the ID presented has Susan Marie Jones, but document has Susan M. Jones, the ID has more detail than the document, so this is acceptable.
