Complete a Live Scan Request form and take all 3 copies to a Live Scan site for fingerprint scanning. Please refer to the Instructions for completing a "Request for Live Scan Service" form. Live Scan sites are located throughout California. For more information about locating a Live Scan site near you, visit the Department of Justice website at http://ag.ca.gov/fingerprints/publications/contact.htm or the sources listed on the bottom of the instructions for completing a "Request for Live Scan Service" form. The lower portion of the Live Scan Request form must be completed by the Live Scan operator verifying that your prints have been scanned and all applicable fees have been paid. Attach the second copy of the form to your application and submit to the board. Note to Applicants Submitting Fingerprints Via Live Scan: While the Live Scan forms contained in the board's application package are pre-slugged to indicate level of service at the DOJ and FBI level, please ensure at the time of Live Scan transmission that the Live Scan operator selects both the DOJ and FBI levels of service. If FBI is not selected at the time of original transmission, you may be required to have your Live Scan redone at another time and have to repay for the DOJ and FBI levels of services again. The board has been notified by the DOJ that effective 9/1/07, if the FBI level of service is not requested at the time of original transmission both DOJ and FBI levels of service will have to be redone. Any issue of cost for resubmission should be handled at the Live Scan Site level.
