Important Notice For Florida Licensing

Delay in Fingerprint Processing May Affect License Applicants

The Florida Department of Financial Services has been notified that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), which processes fingerprint information for background checks, is currently processing transactions through its system slowly. We have not been provided a timeframe for the complete resolution. This may create a delay for license applicants. The FBI has indicated that their staff are working diligently to address the delay as quickly as possible.

License applicants who are required to provide a set of fingerprints may be affected by this delay. The Florida Department of Financial Services thanks you for your patience and understanding.
