Fingerprinting Process

Effective September 5, 2006, ALL Candidates for New Jersey Real Estate Licenses will be required to complete the fingerprinting process as a condition of securing a real estate license.  This includes all new candidates for individual Real Estate Salesperson, Real Estate Broker-Salesperson, Real Estate Broker licenses as well as any individual who will serve as an officer, director, member, partner or owner of a controlling interest of a corporation, limited liability company or partnership applying for a license to conduct business as a Real Estate brokerage company.

Individual candidates have one year from the completion date of their pre-licensure education to take and pass the State examination administered by PSI Services LLC AND to file a fully completed application for licensure with the Licensing Services Bureau, Real Estate.  In order to avoid problems with the expiration of their one year of eligibility for licensure and to make a timely filing, candidates MUST complete the fingerprinting process as soon as possible after PASSING the State examination.

Applications for licensure WILL NOT be accepted without a fully completed application, the appropriate license fee and evidence of the completion of the fingerprinting process. 
Evidence of completion of the fingerprinting process MUST include:

(1) A copy of the applicant's completed Universal Form; and

(2) A copy of the payment receipt issued by MorphoTrak, the fingerprint LiveScan vendor, at the time of completion of the LiveScan printing.
