Complies with Live Scan Level 2 (Florida & FBI Criminal History Checks)
FDLE Approved Live Scan Vendor
Fingerprint Card Scan Service must be used by applicants who require a level 2 background check and live outside of the State of Florida, or are close to our live scan fingerprint location in Florida and need to obtain a Florida license for certain professions. This will help you save time and unnecessary travel expenses.
Florida regulation mandates out-of-state applicants must submit electronic fingerprints with the appropriate State of Florida ORI numbers provided by the State agency requesting the background check. Applicants can utilize standard FBI fingerprint cards (FD-258) or FBI FD-258 form: https://accuratebiometrics.com/files/FD-258_card_w_instructions.pdf
Accurate Biometrics provides Secure Fingerprint Card Scan Service. We convert fingerprint cards (FD-258), or FD-258 forms to Live Scan for fast, secure submissions for Level 2 background checks in Florida.

Simply mail from anywhere in Florida, anywhere in the U.S., or around the World a completed FINGERPRINT CARD (FD-258), or FBI FD-258 form, your payment in the form of a money order or cashier’s check made payable to Accurate Biometrics, or a completed credit card form, along with your email address and telephone number, directly to Accurate Biometrics at 5005 W. Laurel Street, Suite 111, Tampa, FL 33607. The fingerprint cards are converted to Live Scan the same day they are received.
Note: Department of Health applicants by-mail can get a background check for licensing or endorsement purposes ONLY. To work in the state of Florida, a photo must be taken as part of the background check process. This allows the applicant to show up in the Clearinghouse a database where background checks can be shared solely for Florida state agencies. This process cannot be done by mail, and it is described on the Department of Health's website at: http://www.flhealthsource.gov/out-of-state-providers under hard scanning section. It is important to check the Department of Health's requirements for your background check process.
Note: All data fields highlighted in yellow must be written/printed legibly and completely filled-in on the fingerprint card or form to expedite the Fingerprint Card Scan Service.
(Please Note: Our card scan service cannot be provided without an enclosed payment, as this will delay the process.)
