How much will it cost you for fingerprinting?
$25.00 for the first two cards. $5.00 for each additional card for the same individual for the same fingerprint request purpose. A cash discount of $5.00 is applied when paying with US Currency (cash), making the fee $20. No cash discount is offered for the additional cards.
What do you need to bring with you?
The person being fingerprinted must bring a current and valid official photo identification (such as drivers license, DMV official ID, or passport) and a second piece of identification, both with a signature along with payment in the form of cash, check or money order.
Bring any correspondence, forms, fingerprint cards and envelopes you received from the employer or other agency requesting the fingerprints. DO NOT FILL OUT ANY INFORMATION ON THE FINGERPRINT CARD, regardless of your instructions. We have a Livescan machine and will print your name and other information on the card along with your fingerprints. If you were not provided a fingerprint card, we can provide one.
What happens to your fingerprints?
In most cases you will take the completed fingerprints with you, sometimes in a sealed envelop, if required. You are responsible for routing the fingerprint cards to the appropriate agencies following the instructions you received from the agency requiring your fingerprints.
