Driver License Apostille

Are you planning to driver in another country and need an apostille on your Driver License?

If you are planning to swap your State issued license for another, your driver license will need to be notarized before it can receive the apostille.

The first step is to find a notary public who will be able to assist you with the copy certification process.  The process involves making a color copy of your driver license and having it notarized.  Before we can apostille the copy, it must be signed and notarized in the State of issuance.  For example, if your driver license was issued from the State of California, you will need to have a color copy notarized in California.  If your driver license was issued from the State of New York, the color copy will need to be signed and notarized in the State of Texas before we can apostille it (New York Apostille).

Note: Each U.S. State issues an apostille and a driver license.  Your driver license must be apostilled from the state of issuance.

Some States may refer to this type of notarization as “Copy Certification” while others will have you write out a statement and sign it in front of a notary (Jurat Statement).  We recommend that you find a knowledgeable notary who will be able to help you with the notarization process.

If you are currently outside of the USA, you will need to seek the assistance of a family member or friend who is located in the same State your driver license originates from.  For example, if you are currently in South Korea, and your driver license is from California, you can have a family member or friend copy certify your driver license with a notary in the State of Florida and then mail in the document to our Florida office for processing.  Please note that you will need to mail in the original driver license in order for the notary to perform the notarization.

If your driver license originates from: California, New York or Washington DC, we can copy certify your license if you mail in the original to our office.  Please note that we have nine offices throughout the United States and each office can process documents from specific states (State Jurisdiction).  For example, even though we do not have an office in Nevada, our Los Angeles office can process through the State of Nevada.  Our nine offices cover all 50 U.S. States.

Once the copy has been notarized, the second step is to mail in your original notarized copy to our office for processing.  The cost and processing time varies by State.  In a handful of States, a notarized document also requires County Clerk authentication prior to the Apostille.  The State of California does not require County Clerk authentication prior to the apostille.

FBI Background Check Apostille Korea

The first step in obtaining an FBI Background check for Korea is to contact an FBI Approved Channeler.  An FBI Approved Channeler helps expedite the FBI Background Check process by directly sending your fingerprints to the FBI so you’ll get your results back sooner and within a few days.  In order for the background check to qualify for an Apostille, you need to request a document signed by the FBI Section Chief (Kimberly J. Del Greco).  This document will be printed on a special blue-tinted paper and will be mailed to your home or office.  You will need to send us this signed document by mail so we can obtain the Apostille from the US Department of State in Washington, DC.

Here is an example of this letter:

If you plan to also drive in Korea, you’ll need an Apostille on your California Driver License.  If you are already in South Korea, go ahead and mail-in your original California Driver License so we can copy certify it.  We have a full-time notary on staff who will make a color copy of your driver license and attach the “California Copy Certification by Document Custodian”.  This ensures that the California Secretary of State will attach the Apostille to the document and prevent any delays.

Our fee includes UPS Air next business morning delivery to most locations in the United States.  If you live in a rural area, there could be an additional one day delay.  We do provide international shipping to Korea.  Additional shipping rates apply so please Contact Us for the total cost.
