A background check is required of any applicant that does not currently hold an active Kansas license.
Any qualified law enforcement agent in Kansas or another state may take your prints but you must use a card with the KSDE stamp. The background check fee currently (June 2013) is $50.00 but subject to increase at any time. The fee is payable by check or money order to KSDE and is a payment separate from the application fee submitted with a license application. Adequate postage should be placed on an envelope addressed to KSDE and the fingerprint card and fee placed therein and mailed. Please do not bend or fold the fingerprint card as it will not be accepted if it is and you will be mailed a new card for your prints to be taken again.
PLEASE NOTE A BACKGROUND CHECK CLEARANCE IS VALID FOR ONLY SIX MONTHS AND IF YOU SUBMIT A FINGERPRINT CARD BUT DO NOT SUBMIT AN APPLICATION WITHIN THAT TIME PERIOD, A NEW FINGERPRINT CARD AND FEE WILL BE REQUIRED!!!
