A valid form of government-issued identification, such as a driver's license, military identification card, or passport, is required.

Cash, check, money order, and credit cards are accepted.
DOJ Processing of Applicants by Electronic Livescan
Contact the Department of Justice in Sacramento for information and instructions.
Livescan transactions are processed electronically, and the results are sent directly to the agency affiliated with the ORI number on the livescan form by the DOJ. The Montclair Police Department does not have the results and cannot provide that information to you. Questions regarding whether or not results have been sent by the DOJ can be answered by calling its automated number at (916) 227-4557. The ATI number located at the bottom of the livescan form and date of birth of the applicant are required to obtain information from the automated system.
