The Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR) requires the submission of a full set of fingerprints to complete the Yacht and Ship application process. There are two ways to submit fingerprints:
- The fastest and preferred method is submitting fingerprints electronically. To do so, select an approved FDLE (Florida Department of Law Enforcement) Livescan vendor from the link below. You will need to provide the Yacht and Ship Section’s ORI number (FL921900Z) to the vendor so they can submit the fingerprints directly to FDLE. Submit a copy of your receipt with a completed application for licensure or reinstatement to the Division with an application fee of $500. NOTE: The Livescan vendor will charge you directly for the fingerprint scan.
- The second option is to request a fingerprint card from the Division’s Yacht and Ship Section by calling 850.487.2987. Fingerprints may be obtained at a law enforcement office, then mailed to the Division along with your completed application and fee of $551.
Please see the link below for more details and FAQs on fingerprinting.
