If you don't meet these requirements, your application will be denied. There are no special education requirements.

  5. On the morning of the exam, get there early.Bring a government issued photo ID that is not expired and has your signature. A driver's license is perfect. Bring a check or money order for , payable to:  "Secretary of State". You can also use a Visa/Mastercard debit/credit card at the door. 
    • You will also be thumb printed.

    No. Your jurisdiction is the physical boundaries of New York state. You can notarize things from New Jersey only when you are with the person whose signature you are notarizing while together inside New York state.
    Thanks!
