Fingerprinting Services


The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) partners with IdentoGO by IDEMIA to provide electronic fingerprinting services. These services are called FAST - Fingerprint Applicant Services of Texas.


IdentoGO centers are operated by IDEMIA and located throughout the state of Texas to provide FAST. You must schedule an appointment with an IdentoGO center for fingerprinting.


In order for HHSC to receive your fingerprints from DPS, you must use a service code. To obtain the service code, contact the Criminal Background Check program:

HHSC will receive your fingerprints through a secure website within 24 - 48 business hours after you complete the fingerprinting.


Aides and applicants are responsible for paying the cost of fingerprinting. If you remain active on the medication aide registry or nurse aide registry, fingerprinting is a one-time requirement and cost.
