Applying for a DBS check is a two stage process.
Stage One – you fill in the information on the online form (instructions provided at the link below).
Stage Two – we verify that you are the person you claim to be on the form using the documents you show me.
They then issue you with a certificate. If you would like to avoid the need to apply for additional DBS checks in the future, you can sign up to the DBS Update Service for which there is a small annual charge. However, if you are going to do this, you need to sign up within a limited number of days of receiving the certificate. The instructions for signing up are provided with your new DBS certificate.
