AAA Northampton County and AAA Schuylkill County provide notary services for Motor Vehicle and Driver Licensing transactions; our employees are highly trained in these types of transactions. They are not attorney notaries and are not trained in all types of legal documents, therefore we do limit the types of transactions our notaries may or may not perform.
Notarial Acts AAA Northampton County or AAA Schuylkill County may perform:
*All documents must have the proper notarial wording included; if not, you must contact the maker of the document and request what notarial act is required. If you are unable to provide what type of notarial act is required, we will refuse service.

Pennsylvania notaries are governed by Title 57 of the Pennsylvania Statutes, known as the Notary Public Law and are strictly prohibited from giving legal advice or drafting legal documents such as contracts, mortgages, leases, wills, powers of attorney, liens or bonds.
The Notary Public Law states that we must be sure of the customer's identity through our own personal knowledge or through satisfactory evidence presented to us by the customer. If the customer's identity is not known to us, then it must be proven by the customer or service will be refused.
