Does a signed promissory note need to be notarized or witnessed?

Full Question:

Does a signed promissory note need to be notarized to be an official document? My son lent a friend money and when my son tried to collect the unpaid debt, he was told since the borrower's signature wasn't notarized it is not an official document and he can't take the promissory note to court to sue for his money. Is that true?
