Unveiling the Mystery: How to Check Your Live Scan Results in California

After completing your Live Scan fingerprinting, the wait for results can feel like an eternity. You might be wondering, “How do I check my Live Scan results in California?” Here at Downtown Live Scan, your trusted partner in Los Angeles (and beyond!), we understand the importance of staying informed. This guide will shed light on the process in California and empower you to track your results efficiently.

Who Can Check Your Results?

Unfortunately, you cannot directly access your Live Scan results yourself. They are sent electronically to the requesting agency (the entity that initiated your background check). This agency is responsible for notifying you of the results.

Here’s what you can do:

1. Contact the Requesting Agency:

Your best course of action is to contact the agency that requested your Live Scan fingerprinting. They will have access to your results and can give you an update on the status.

  • Look for contact information on the application form you completed for the Live Scan.
  • You can often find contact details for government agencies and licensing boards on their official websites.

2. Utilize the DOJ Applicant Status Check (For California Residents Only):

If your Live Scan was processed through the California Department of Justice (DOJ), you can check its online applicant status checker (limited information provided): https://applicantstatus.doj.ca.gov/.

Here’s what to keep in mind:

  • You will need your date of birth and the 10-digit Automated Transaction Identifier (ATI) number from your Live Scan application form.
  • The DOJ status checker primarily indicates whether your Live Scan is still processing or if it has been completed and sent to the requesting agency. It may not display your actual background check results.

3. Patience is Key:

Processing times for Live Scan results can vary depending on the requesting agency and the complexity of your background check. It could take anywhere from a few days to several weeks.

Pro Tip: Inquire about the expected turnaround time for your background check results when you initially submit the Live Scan request.
