; California Out-Of-State Fingerprinting

California Department of Insurance Out-of-State Fingerprint Card Processing

Accurate Biometrics provides fingerprint "hard card" scan service for California Department of Insurance applicants who reside outside of the State of California or are not in close proximity to our live scan fingerprint location in Los Angeles, California. This will help you save time and unnecessary travel expenses.

Instructions for Fingerprint Card-Scan Service

The fingerprints will be submitted to the California Department of Justice (DOJ) and to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to ascertain whether or not the non-resident applicant has a criminal record that could prevent the applicant from holding a non-resident insurance producer's license in California. California mail-in applicants, please follow these steps as well. Please include your contact information (phone number and email) so we can reach you with questions and avoid processing delays.

Fingerprint Requirements

Please download the CDI Applicant Instruction Form (LIC 442-39A) which includes a form for credit card payment. Instructions for California mail-in and non-California residents are on page 2. If paying by credit card, complete the Credit Card Payment Form and include it with your mailing.

Please download the Live Scan Form. Fill out the applicant information part of the form. (Please don’t be confused. While the CDI form packet number is LIC 442-39A, the form number on the live scan form itself is BCIA 8016).)
