Basic DBS checks

You can apply for a basic Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check online by visiting the GOV.UK site. If you're unable to validate your identity online, you can get verified by visiting a Post Office branch instead. To apply for this option, start your online application on the GOV.UK DBS check application page and select ‘Prove your identity in person'.
