What is Livescan?

Published by admin on October 23,2008

Livescan fingerprinting is an electronic method of capturing and distributing fingerprints. The Department of Real Estate requires that all applicants for a salesperson or broker license have a Livescan done and pass a background check by the Department of Justice and the FBI.

In a previous blog, I talked about criminal history and a real estate license.

Just a quick reminder that you have to have a Livescan done to get a license. The form that you would use to get this can be found here

Also, a list of Livescan service providers can be found here

It is my experience that a lot of the centers on that list have moved or are no longer in business, so I would call ahead and talk to someone before you go. Some of the centers require an appointment, so be sure to check them out before you drive out.

As always, I am here to help. Contact me with any questions!

Good luck!
