  • Locations identified by BNR (Billing Number Required) provide live scan services only to applicants with agency billing numbers identified on their Live Scan forms. These sites may collect rolling fees only ­ they do not collect any other fees.
  • Rolling fees vary from location to location and cover only the operator's cost for rolling the fingerprint images.
  • Applicants must present valid photo identification to the Live Scan Operator. Expired identification cards will not be accepted.
