You may have your fingerprints rolled at a Police or Sheriff’s office in any state.  The person rolling your fingerprints will collect your money order and be responsible for mailing your fingerprints and IVP application to DPS for processing.  Once you have received your plastic, valid  IVP card from DPS, please submit a photocopy of your fingerprint card along with your application for certification.
