A guy I work with is a Notary, but I believe when you notarize something, they need to sign a record book and get a fingerprint. I dont see what you need a notary for when you already know you need the other guy to be present. Unless your asking to have it done with some cash under the table :) Have you called the DMV to see what your options are if you dont have the previous owners signature and cant get a hold of them?

yeah...i cannot find the other guy! it was a year ago. So yes...more or less...under the table

Well, I'll ask when I see him and see what could be done.

Call the DMV and see what your options are. Most banks have a notary that might be able to help you. I hope that helps.

yeah...i called the dmv...they said i have to have a notarized bill of sale...because in louisiana when we register our cars they tax you on how much in on the bill and not by KBB

You could look the previous owner up on the internet. Try going to ( I hope saying that isn't against the rules...if so please delete)

My wife is a notary. I don't think anyone that is a notary would be willing to help you though. The notary's job is to verify the signature of the person, without that person present you can not get it notarized. I'm sure you already know this though, which is why you're asking if someone will commit notary fraud for you and risk a $10,000 fine.

Like others suggested, your best bet is to call the DMV and ask what other options you have. I'm sure they'll work with you.
