Frequently Asked Questions

What is Live Scan?


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.


How long does it take to get fingerprinted?


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
