How much does a Live Scan cost?

So your employer or licensing agency has asked you to do a Live Scan Fingerprint and you want to know how much it will cost?

The breakdown for the price of a Live Scan varies depending on your agency’s ORI number and the Application Type on your Live Scan Request Form.

Typically the fees are as follows:

- Rolling Fee: $20 – $25

- DOJ Fee: $32

- FBI Fee: $17

- Child Fee: $15

- DOJ Fee for Record Review: $25

**These fees may be changed by the DOJ at any time without notice, so it is recommended to call ahead and give the Live Scan location the information to get an estimate of the cost of your Live Scan.

If you want to know exactly how much the cost of your Live Scan Fingerprint transaction will be, you should contact your requesting agency and look on your Request for Live Scan form and see which levels of service are checked off (DOJ, FBI, etc…).

If both the DOJ and the FBI are checked off on your form and the site is charging $20 for the rolling fee, you would pay an estimate of $69 ($20+ $32 + $17).

Some agencies, such as non-profit organizations, may have different government fees. If you are volunteering for one of these agencies, the DOJ Fee may be waived.

Billing Number:

If you have a Billing Number on your form, then you will only have to pay the Rolling Fee. The other government fees will be paid by your Requesting Agency or Employer. So if you want to save money on your Live Scan, try to see if you can get that billing number!
