Fingerprint and photo info

CHL renewal applicants are not required to submit fingerprints* or passport photos** as part of their renewal
application. TXDPS now has the technical capability to use the photo on file and to resubmit the fingerprints
on file for the required background check.

* However, if the fingerprints on file do not meet current FBI or Texas quality standards; applicants will be
required to provide a new set of electronically captured fingerprints using the State’s designated vendor, L-1
Enrollment Services (L-1).

** TXDPS reserves the right to request replacement passport photos in the event current photos do not meet
quality standards and/or a person’s appearance has changed substantially. TXDPS will send notification to
the applicant if new photos are required.
