If you have questions about what to bring, please take a look at the checklist below. If you’re ready to get started, click the GET FINGERPRINTING button. Questions? Call 866-361-9944 or use the chat feature on this page.

Are You Ready For Fingerprinting?

  1. Obtain an ORI number from the Clerk of Court in the county the case is being filed under.

  2. Use your Live Scan Request Form as a reference to register online for fingerprinting.

  3. Bring your registration confirmation email (printed or on your phone) along with your current (not expired) driver’s license, government issued identification card, or passport to the fingerprinting Kiosk location of your choosing. (You will choose your location after clicking the GET FINGERPRINTING button below.) Please call us at (866) 361-9944 if you have any questions.

  4. The fingerprints that are captured by the technician at the fingerprinting Kiosk are sent to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE). The FDLE then sends the fingerprints to the FBI for processing.

  5. You will receive an email providing you with a Transaction Control Number (TCN) that verifies your live scan submission has been processed. The TCN number can be given to the Clerk of Court or Attorney at Law requesting the background check as it will help them track results. Results should get to the Clerk of Court in about 24-72 hours. IMPORTANT: Please save your TCN number for reference.
