Live Scan is the name for the technology that is used to capture the image(s) of your fingerprint(s). Essentially, it is a digital image that is captured on our machine much like that of the image created from a copying machine. It is simple, quick, and painless. All types of individuals are required by the state and federal governments to get Live Scan, including (but not limited to): realtors, licensed DMV professionals, notaries, foster parents, teachers, appraisers, caregivers, stockbrokers, contractors, nurses, doctors, surgeons, security guards, volunteers, and lawyers.
It typically takes about 15-30 minutes from the time the equipment is set up until all of your fingerprints have been captured. However, some professionals that work with their hands a lot may take longer to capture, such as doctors, nurses, and massage therapists
