FAQ: How can I get my fingerprints taken in Missouri?

How can I get my fingerprints taken in Missouri?

Applicants for a Missouri real estate license must first register with MACHS – the Missouri Automated Criminal History Site. When contacting MACHS, the applicant must provide the MREC’s four-digit authorization number, 0004, which essentially authorizes and directs the Missouri State Highway Patrol (MSHP) to forward the criminal history results to the Missouri Real Estate Commission. Remember, the MREC’s four-digit code, 0004, is critical, as this code lets the MSHP know where they are to send the criminal history search results.

When registered, real estate license applicants select from a list of potential locations throughout Missouri to have their fingerprints taken. Applicants must bring a valid photo ID like a passport, driver's license, or military ID, for example. Reservations for fingerprints are encouraged because those applicants with reservations are given priority to those who just walk in to have their fingerprints taken.

An applicant for a Missouri real estate license must use an approved fingerprint vendor, like IDEMIA. Step by step instructions are available online.

The fingerprinting process takes about ten minutes. Applicants are required to sign the Missouri Applicant Fingerprint Privacy Notice, which includes three sections:

· The Privacy Act Statement – which is located on the back of the FD258 fingerprint card.

· The Noncriminal justice Applicant Privacy Rights, and

· The State and National Disclosure
