An Out-of-state resident visited us at GreenvilleNotary.com’s Headquarters for a Division of Motor Vehicles Application for Kentucky Certificate of Title or Registration. In this case, the person signing did NOT have a South Carolina identification card. Just so you know, in order to have a document notarized, you do not have to specifically have a state id or driver’s license for that state, however, you must hold some type of valid, government-issued ID. There is also another way that you may be identified if you do not have this. For signers that appear before me and need an item notarized, but do not hold valid, government-issued ID, they must appear with two credible witnesses who will swear and affirm the fact that they know the signer by 1) presenting ‘their’ valid, government-issued ID, 2) filling out and completing a Jurat/Affiant Statement and/or 3) be given an oath, attesting that they know the person and how.
Just some extra information for this post, none of that occurred here. The signer held out-of-state license only. Completed by Certified Notary Public Signing Agent and National Notary Association Ambassador Sonita M. Leak on Thursday, August 27, 2015.
