3. Certificate of the Passed test (from SOS) (see step 5)
4. Photo or scan of your ID (see step 6)

Step 8: WAIT FOR SOS TO CHECK ON DOCS
Once you receive confirmation all is done and approved. You will get an email confirming this, and telling you when YOUR COMMISSION EXPIRES. Email this information to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com (so they can order the stamp). Confirm that the stamp was ordered!
