The Nurnotare exist in a number of Ländern including Bayern, Rheinland-Pfalz, Nordrhein-Westfalen in the district of Oberlandesgerichte of Köln and Düsseldorf, (with certain exceptions); and in the city of Stuttgart and in Hamburg and Saarland. As already indicated, a Nurnotar is not allowed to practice any other profession (including that of a Rechtsanwalt). Furthermore he has to undergo supplementary training in addition to passing the second state examination. He is assigned to a notary, with whom he must work on activities which are suitable, having regard for the fact that he is undergoing training, for a period of at least three years. Once this period has elapsed, he may open his own office, provided there is a free district.
