BCI&I and BMV Partnership to Provide More Efficient Background Checks

 

June 22, 2012
Results of background checks performed by the Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation (BCI&I) may now be received electronically, if no arrest record exists. Previously these results were mailed and had to be manually keyed and matched to the application submitted to the BMV Dealer Licensing Unit for licensure. Now upon receipt, if no other corrections are pending, the application will auto-process the same day the no-arrest record is received. Please note, results that produce an arrest record must, by statute, be mailed to our agency and will delay the application process.
Applicants must request "BMV Dealer Licensing" direct copy from the webcheck locations in order for the result to be sent electronically in lieu of a paper copy being mailed to the BMV. Thanks to this partnership effort, receipt of electronic background (no arrest) results are received and applications may be issued up to three weeks faster.
