3. How long does it take to get back the fingerprint (or drug test) results?

Fingerprint results take between 24-72 hours. However, if the quality of prints are poor, it may require a reprint or a longer process time. If a criminal history is found, it can increase the amount of time taken to receive results. Florida's current workload is another factor that may effect fingerprinting results time. We are here and available for help throughout the entire process.

In-house drug screen results are INSTANT. Laboratory screens take up to 5 days.

8. How does EZ ensure a quality fingerprint?


 Text for imageThere are a number of conditions that can affect the image quality of a fingerprint. For instance, wet or sweaty fingers may cause the fingerprint to look blurred and not come out clearly. On the other hand, dry fingers will cause the image to look broken and lack definition. If a clearly defined delta and core (see insert) can be seen, that is a quality fingerprint. At EZ FingerPrints, we are experts at looking and finding quality fingerprints to ensure they are approved.


9. What are the different types of fingerprints?

  • Arches – only represent five percent of the fingerprint patterns encountered – no core or delta formations 
  • Loops – constitute between 60-70 percent of the patterns found in fingers – one delta formation and a core
  • Whorls – constitute between 25-35 percent of the patterns found in fingers – two delta formations and a core
