How much does it cost?

To complete the initial registration, the cost is between $94.00 and $110.00.  This includes: $35.00 for the State’s application fee and between $59.00-$75.00 for the Livescan fee. The Livescan fee includes the California Department of Justice (DOJ) fee, which is currently $32.00, the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) fee, which is currently $17.00 and the fee the Livescan operator charges, which varies, to process the fingerprints.  The Livescan fee is required only one time and the $35.00 application fee is required every two years at the time of renewal.
