Default License Fingerprints How far back to they go

Anybody know how far back the fingerprint check goes and if they do a one to many that is check the index finger against a database of other people.

My friend had a fake ID in 1989 in Colo and they got his print on file. He wants to know if he moved back to Colo now and used everything legit how likely would they be to catch his old license by fingerprint

The alternative of chopping off a digit is unappealing to him

Back then it was an ink print. Now its digit. Do they only check against current junk

Amputation however is crazy. What did your friend do? commit a crime?

I'm not really familiar with the DMV rules, but assuming your friend got caught for his fake ID way back then and paid his fine or whatever punishment you get for that, I don't know why they wouldn't give him a license now. I guess if he just fled the state and has been wanted by the police for 20 years it might be a problem, but unless there is some rule I don't know about, people with criminal records can still get a drivers license.

He didnt commit a crime just wanted to be older. No warrants. Just afraid that they will run the check and charge him with fraud because the old print comes up.

I think he was joking about chopping off the digit but I am not sure.

How would they have a record of his fake ID? If he had a fake ID and never got in trouble for it, I don't know how the DMV would ever know about it.

If it is anything like the prints required for a liquor license -- they never go away.

Default Don't worry

The statute of limations may have expired on this fraud. See what the statute of limitations is in Colorado on this sort of thing. Well worth your while to seek legal counsel before you come back and apply for another driver's license.
