How much will this cost?

The Transportation Security Administration's (TSA) fee for a background record check is $86.50.

If you do not pay the required fingerprint fee when you pre-register you will be required to pay the fee at the *in-person enrollment before you can be fingerprinted. You may pay with a credit card or money order, company check, or certified/cashier's check payable to Morpho Trust USA. Enrollment centers accept Visa®, MasterCard®, American Express, and Discover credit cards. Cash and personal checks are NOT accepted. These fees were established by the TSA.

The state of Michigan does not collect or receive any fees related to the background checks. The $86.50 is for the federal background check only and does not cover any other driver licensing fees.

In-person enrollment is completed at the fingerprint location where you will provide Transportation Security Administration (TSA) acceptable enrollment documents found at: and provide your fingerprints. Preregistering significantly reduces the amount of time you will spend at the fingerprint office.
