Frequently Asked Questions...

What is an ORI Number, and how do I get it?

ORI stands for Originating Agency Identifier Number. These numbers tell the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) why you need the background check and to whom to send your results. Your ORI number ensures your fingerprints are sent to the right state department and will determine the fees that are accessed at the time of service. 

If you do not already know what ORI number you require at the time of service, it is best to get in contact with your potential employer, or supervisor, to receive the correct ORI number to ensure that your scans are sent to the correct agency. 

We have developed an ORI lookup tool to help identify common ORI numbers that are needed at the time of service, as well as the fees associated with the scans. 

**A New Way Professional Service is not liable for incorrect ORI numbers provided to us at the time of service. It is the responsibility of the customer to verify the accuracy of the ORI number before the time of service to ensure that the scans and the fees accessed are being sent to the correct agency.

How Much Does this Service Cost?

The cost of LiveScan fingerprinting Services is mandated by the state and is entirely based on the ORI number that you are assigned before your visit. Typically, the cost ranges between $60-$200, depending on which ORI number you are applying your LiveScan prints to and the agency that will be processing your scans after it has been electronically received. 

 Before you visit, use our ORI-Look-Up Tool to determine the expected cost of your fingerprint scans.

***Pricing Tables are updated frequently but are subject to change at any time. The ORI tool can be useful to manage price expectations, but prices may vary at the time of service. 

What do I need to bring with me?

The only thing that you will need to bring with you to your appointment is your correct ORI Number. Sometimes, you may be required to take a photo to send with your fingerprint scans. We can take your photo at the time of your appointment.

How do I track my Fingerprint Status?

Fingerprint information can be accessed on the FDLE Website. Fingerprint submission results are generally posted within 24 – 36 business hours after fingerprint scans are transmitted to the responsible agency.
