Fingerprinting Instructions

Pursuant to Texas Occupations Code Chapter 1702, DPS must conduct a fingerprint based FBI Criminal History background check for new and renewal Private Security Registration applications.

Private Security applicants are required to submit fingerprints to DPS as part of a substantially complete application per administrative rule ยง35.21. Fingerprints must be submitted electronically with IdentoGO, unless the applicant qualifies for the Alternative Fingerprint Process.

NOTE* If there are no electronic fingerprinting appointments available within three business days, you may submit a complaint to DPS at Fingerprint Applicant Services of Texas (FAST).
