    Anyone ever had fingerprints rejected?

    Hey everyone, applied for my Florida CWP, and since I have hyperhidrosis (sweaty palms) I turned in 2 fingerprint cards in with my application just in case one was smudged. So last week I called the licensing dept. on 60th day (of a 90 day wait) just to check the status and to see if there was a problem with the prints. Turns out my application was "marked" for rejection due to smudged prints , and the application would be "reviewed" by a supervisor before being "rejected." I'm suppose to be recieving a call tomorrow (Monday) from the supervisor on whats going to happen if it's rejected.

    Has this ever happened to anyone? Am I going to have to get my prints done digitally? Is my application going to be pushed to the back of the pile and start the wait all over again?

    Give me some info on whats going to happen next guys...

    Where did you get your prints done?

    My instructor said it was best to get them done at the DPS headquarters or at least some other State Police office. Had no problems here in Louisiana.

    I guess if you get rejected you could try that.

    No, I don't think you go to the back of the line...they will notify you of the problem and place your file in a 'waiting stack'.
    I would suggest getting your prints done digitally...not sure of your area, but ask around.
    The computer knows instantly if your prints are acceptable...that would solve your problem.
    Call the Dept of Ag...they are very friendly and helpful...they may have additional suggestions.

    Stay armed...soon, I hope...stay safe!

    When I took my concealed carry class they told us that doing the fingerprints digitally was the only way to go. Its both faster and cheaper and the computer wont accept the prints if they are no good. Good Luck from another Floridian

    I have had prints rejected because they were allegedly smudged. No biggy. At least where I live they will do electronic prints at the local police station for a nominal charge.

    The nice thing about electronic prints is that the clerk can keep taking them over and over until the machine gets them right. I think your hyperhidrosis might actually help with electronic prints as the clerk kept spraying my fingers with water before I placed them on the scanner.

    Good luck.

    Most county police stations will do digital prints. I live up north in Saint Johns and they did it not problem. Make sure you don't go to one of the smaller more rural counties, we have a few here that don't have digital. Way easier, I was in and out quick and sent a copy of the card in with it. I am about 30 days into my 90 day wait.

    My hands were a little sweaty when I had mine done so the girl turned on a small fan she had clipped to the shelf in front of her and had me hold the fingers of each hand there for 15-20 seconds before she rolled the prints (digitals). Still waiting on my permit so I don't know if she was successful or not!

    Anyone ever had fingerprints rejected?

    Yes, a long time ago; it was because of gaps in the prints.
    The problem was I was an outdoor kid and had cuts and nicks that caused hollows that did not pick up the ink.
    Happens, but, an adult today should be able to look at the print and see if it is clear or smudged. Then request a do over.

    I had mine done electronically in St. Johns county. It cost $42 -- and they needed cash, exact change.

    Texas just had them redone. No big deal, little delay.

    It's been two week since I sent in my CCW app to DPS. I've heard others in AZ get it as soon as 3-5 days. If I don't get it tomorrow, my guess is they rejected my fingerprint card for one reason or another.
