Utah Electronic Fingerprints
Applicant's fingerprints are used for a file search through the Utah Bureau of Criminal Identification (BCI) and the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) (these services are available at no charge). Candidates must submit their fingerprints to apply for a license with the Division of Professional and Occupational Licensing (DOPL).
Instructions to get the fingerprints
- Book the appointment online
- Go to the DOPL office location:
160 E 300 S Salt Lake City
- If submitting a paper application, please arrive 5 minutes early
- Bring a valid government-issued ID (Passport, State ID, US driver's license, or US Military ID)
- Before submitting the fingerprints and application form, read and acknowledge the Privacy Act Statement
Note: If you do not have an application on file with the Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing, be prepared to submit your application when you arrive for your appointment.
Utah Fingerprint Cards
If the candidate cannot submit the fingerprints to the DOPL office, the applicant must fill out two (FD-258) forms. This document is issued by the ATF Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. The fingerprint cards must be sent with the application form for the corresponding license.
Step by Step to Submit the (FD-258) Form
- Request the form online from the ATF Distribution Center
- Fill out the form:
- Demographic information
- Must be of high quality
- No smudges
- All surfaces must be covered
- Signatures from the candidate and the individual who took the fingerprints
- Read and acknowledge the Privacy Act Statement
A result of a decision can be reviewed by the agency. This action can be requested by contacting the Executive Director of the Department of Commerce. The requirements must comply with the Utah Code § 63G-4-301 and Utah Admin. Code R151-4-902 (this must be submitted within 30 days from the answer notification).
