The purpose of a notary commission number is to identify the notary to the state government. If you are a notary, your Secretary of State(s) office should have sent you a letter to inform you of the term of your notary commission.
That letter should contain your Notary Commission Number.
In the State of Florida, Florida notary commission numbers are issued per notary commission, not per Florida notary. Therefore, each time you renew your term of office as a Florida Notary Public, you will be issued a new Florida notary commission number for that specific notary term.
Once a Florida notary commission expires, so does that coinciding commission number.
Other states may have different rules and procedures, however, does that mean you should not remember your Notary commission number by heart?
We all know that notaries are important because we give the document legal weight.
We go through training to become who we are. And must maintain our status, background and training education, in orde to perform the notarial acts our State has commissioned us to do.
Well in some states that may or may not be the case. However, all States are the same when it comes to Commission Numbers. Once you become a Notary Public, and your State provides you with your commission number, wouldn't you WANT to remember it?
It's true, the old saying goes...…If you don't use it...you loose it! When you actually are performing notarial acts, you can't miss seeing your number over and over again. And when the Notary makes the effort to remember your commissioned number given to you, that shows major work ethic and morality to clients and potential repeat cliental.
In by doing so, whether you are networking or on the job, the Notary Public will eventually gain credibility and make a positive impact in the process. When you use your stamp, the commission number is there and visible every single signing. So that makes the process of remembering a little more easier to accomplish.
Well, the old saying goes...…If you don't use it...you loose it!ry commission, but once you have been provided your commission number, should you remember it?
Well the answer is Yes of course! What better way to make a first impression, by showing you not only are competent enough to handling the notarial signing, but that you also know your commission number by heart. That shows extreme dedication and drive. Believe it or not...THAT'S IMPRESSIVE! And that is what will get you repeat customers and attention for your business.
But you struggle with memorizing things? How can you try and remember one more thing on top of everything else?
Well, the old saying goes......If you don't use it...you loose it!
Studies show that when you clear out old information in your mind and make room for all of the new information that you have obtained, it's easier to focus and remember certain things that are important and have value.
Try structure and organization. Researchers have found that information is organized in memory in related clusters. We as adult learners have the advantage of this by structuring and organizing the materials we study or focus on things we are trying to remember. Grouping similar concepts, terms etc., helps your mind focus on what you have been trying remember and remains outlined in your frontal lobe encoded on the hippocampus.
Research also shows that when we tend to write something down, our brains are really concerned, as if we were actually doing what we just wrote down.
For instance, when you arrive to a signing or meet someone who may ask you if you know your commission number off hand, you never want to say to them that you, "don't know it", or put them on pause while you scramble to locate it. That is not a good look nor does that leave a positive lasting impression.

As you can imagine, visual learners favor seeing something in order to learn it. So before you go into your signing appointment, take a quick glance at your stamp. When you actually perform notarizations, always remember to take a quick look at your commission number and try to repeat it back to yourself.
So let's seriously think about this. If your notary commission number is located on your certificate and your stamp, keeping in mind that you see the numbers daily, it's even easier than you think to memorize. We all have a Notary ID and Comission number, and you should take into consideration of remembering your commissioned number for your state.
Experiential learning types are more akin to learning from events and experiences (or, doing something with the material).
So if you repeadely see your commission number, try saying it out loud, or re-writing it down.
