If you are fingerprinted using Direct Electronic Submission the processing time is typically up to 5 days. If you are fingerprinted using paper fingerprint cards (Two Original FD-258 Fingerprint Cards) it can take 15-30 days to process. Keep this in mind when deciding when and where to be fingerprinted. If you know you will be using a location that only does paper fingerprint cards, plan accordingly.
You will be prevented from renewing your license until the RELMS system receives an electronic acknowledgement from the Utah Bureau of Criminal Identification (BCI) that you have submitted your fingerprints to the FBI for processing, you have no criminal history, or the Division has reviewed your criminal history.
