Any person applying for or renewing a license with TREC must provide fingerprints for a criminal history check. The fingerprint process is easy and can be done in a few short steps.

How to Get Your Fingerprints Taken:

IdentoGO by IDEMIA collects and submits fingerprints to the FBI via the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS), but has no role in the actual research and processing of your criminal background check or the delivery of its results.

Search for your account using either your TREC ID or First Name, Last Name, and Birth Date. Then you will be able to obtain your IdentoGO ID required to schedule a fingerprinting appointment.

Fast Facts on the Fingerprint Process

Fingerprints you may have submitted for any other reason, such as previous employment or another state-issued license, are not acceptable for a TALCB or TREC license.

  • The fingerprints must be in the FBI’s required format and must be taken at an authorized DPS site.
  • Occasionally fingerprints may be unreadable. If this happens, IDEMIA will contact you with instructions to be reprinted at no additional cost. Reprints cannot be scheduled online.
  • If prints are unreadable a second time, a TREC staff person will initiate a manual name search through the FBI which adds to the processing time.
