Illinois Simple Card Scan Steps (OOS-FP):

  1. To start your Illinois Card Scanning process, go to your local police department or a Live scan fingerprint vendor to get your fingerprints on an FD-258 Card or a Fee App card. Keep in mind that you can also purchase the FBI FD-258 fingerprint card by going to our online store.
  2. Make sure the Identity Verification Certifying Statement (aka OOS-FP Form) is filled out properly as well as the Biometric Impressions Corp. consent form. On the OOS-FP form (page 1 of PDF), Section 1 needs to be filled by the applicant, Section 2 needs to be filled out by the person who did your fingerprints and Section 3 is for us to fill so please leave it blank. On the consent form (page 2 of PDF), please sign were it asks you to sign and fill out your personal information. We also ask if you can please include a quick cover letter. Nothing too fancy, just something that clearly states your name, reason for fingerprints, the best contact phone number and email address.
  3. Call us before mailing anything off so we can discuss your payment options
  4. Send those documents to:
    BioMetric Impressions
    188 W. Industrial Drive, Suite 214B
    Elmhurst, IL 60126
    We recommend that you use FedEx, UPS or USPS priority mail to send the documents and please make sure that they are sealed in a hard envelope. Why? This helps maintain the best quality prints and gets your fingerprints to us sooner.
  5. We will process your fingerprint cards the day we receive them.
  6. After your data has been transmitted, you will receive an email notification from us confirming that we have received and processed your fingerprint card. We will also attach the completed OOS-FP Form so that you can have it for your records as well as submit it with your application.
  7. Finally, the proper Illinois licensing department will receive the results, typically within 24 to 48 hours.
  8. Rest easy, you’ve completed all the required steps for Illinois Card Scanning!
