how to exchange american driver license to portuguese driver license?

I know of the process but I don't know how to apostile an abstract of driving record. I read on a site that a new york abstract of driving record does not need to be notarised and can be apostiled directly but when i go to apply for an apostille it says on the apostile application paper to get apostiled papers notarised which is weird. does anyone know how to get an apostile on an abstract driving record from new york? i know of a website that can do it for 175 dollars but i don't want to pay that much.
