Live Scan Fingerprints


I am a MA resident applied for FL license by endorsement. They want Livescan Prints. Can I do this in MA? Person I spoke to at Morphos states I have to go Police Station and send the hard copy to their processing center in Illinois. Seems there has to be an easier way.

In my experience you are going to have to find a place that offers Live Scan. There is no ink involved in these prints it's just electronic prints on a machine that are sent to the board using the ORI number. Just so you are aware they are expensive around 80-110 depending on the place you go. Just look online to see if there is a place in your area that offers the Live Scan. If not I would call the FL BON to see what they want you to do. Hope this helps!

I would call the FL BON to see what's required. Live Scan was expensive. In Pensacola I paid $85 just this past September. Problem came in that they could not read the fingerprints so the FBI had to do a regular background check and it took longer. I guess since I'm 53 my fingerprints aren't what they used to be. :) It was done right on a computer.... a glass screen. I had it done twice.
