Individual Application & Fingerprinting

Bail Bond Individual Application & Fingerprinting Instructions

The Utah Insurance Department requires that all individuals applying for an individual bail bond insurance license be fingerprinted. Fingerprinting must be done at a Prometric test center, using “live scan” technology, which digitally captures and transmits the fingerprints to the Utah Department of Public Safety, Bureau of Criminal Identification (BCI) and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), for a criminal history background check.
