    So, I get a renewal notice for my Florida CCW. They are now requiring a new fingerprint card as well as a new photo plus $87.00. Problem is that the fingerprint card has to be done in ink (no digital) and done by a “law enforcement agency”. Local PDs don’t do it anymore, MD state police don’t do it anymore. Tried local and State police in Delaware.....nope. Ended up having to go to York PA.
    The photo head shot dimensions are specific but an odd size, not a typical passport size. So I spent 2 hours to finally make my own at home.
    Seems as if Florida really doesn’t want out of state renewals?

    Fla has been like that for years. No issues with a passport photo and got the prints at UMBC police. I don’t live close either.
    No big deal to me.

    The photo required has head measurements now down to the 1/8 inch and my passport photos were too large. Didn’t know about UMBC. neither did Absolute investigative who used to be able to provide everything needed...no longer can.

    I must have gotten in under the wire, mines valid until mid 2027 and I don’t recall that much difficulty.

    When I renewed in 2018, the photo was a PP photo. The prints I got done at UMBC. When I originally got mine back in the day, Absolute could do the prints (and photo) as they were acting as agents for the MSP. But something changed with either that or FLA accepting them.

    Do not know where you live but 3rd part places that do live scan sometimes can do ink prints as well. When I did HQL I went to place in Bel Air that would do ink and card as long as you brought the cards.

    FLA requires a LE to do the ink.

    FL rejected prints I did for an applicant. It’s such a joke. I do them for Utah as part of the class.
