  • Select “CO Licensure/Employment Cabs” for the reason why you need to get fingerprinted. This should be the first selection from that list.

*Please note that Colorado Fingerprinting is not a state agency providing this service and is a private company.

No other vendors, other than those listed above, are authorized to take fingerprints for CDE by statute. Colorado law requires that prints be taken by law enforcement or by a vendor approved by CBI. Using another vendor or mailing your fingerprint card to a card conversion center, may be costly and may require you to submit a new set of prints taken by one of the above listed vendors. Mailing a fingerprint card should be your last resort as there can be significant delays in processing versus having your prints taken electronically at one of these centers.
