Required Fields & Demographic Data
When and if you should complete the information at the top of the card will depend on where you have your fingerprints taken. Many locations will enter the information into a computer that will then print the information on the card. Others will ask you to complete the information by hand. Check with the fingerprinting location to determine whether you should fill out the information before your appointment.
CBC TIP: When you contact the fingerprinting location to schedule an appointment, be sure to ask both of these questions:
- Do you have an official FD-258 card or its equivalent?
- Should I fill out the top portion of the card before my appointment?
