FAQ: How do I get my fingerprints taken?

How do I get my fingerprints taken?

You must schedule a fingerprint appointment at any MorphoTrust location in the State of Texas.
You can make a fingerprint reservation by calling (888)467-2080, or through TREC’s website.
You should make your reservation at least 24 hours in advance.

You should only make your fingerprint reservation after TREC approves your initial license application and you receive your State exam eligibility letter. Your eligibility letter will include a TREC ID number, which is needed when you make your electronic fingerprint appointment.

The fingerprint fee is $38.25 and paid to MorphoTrust.

Please have your TREC exam eligibility letter with you when you arrive at the MorphoTrust center. You will be photographed and get your fingerprints taken at the MorphoTrust center. Your fingerprints will then be sent to the Department of Public Safety (DPS) and the FBI.

For out-of-state applicants, you have the option to get your fingerprints taken at a MorphoTrust location near you.
