Acceptable ID Documents

List of Acceptable ID Documents: Standard DBS & Enhanced DBS checks

The identity of Standard DBS and Enhanced DBS Applicants must be verified by nominated Application Managers / ID Checkers.

In order for their Standard DBS or Enhanced DBS Application to be submitted for processing, applicants must show their Application Manager / ID Checker some original ID documents that meet the list of Acceptable ID.

The list of Acceptable ID for Standard DBS and Enhanced DBS applications is stipulated by the DBS (the Disclosure and Barring Service).

In addition to this, Application Managers / ID Checkers must also follow the DBS ID checking guidelines available to view/download from our Customer Resources/Links webpage.


DBS ID Checking Change due to Coronavirus. The DBS have introduced temporary changes to the DBS ID Checking procedure whereby ID Checkers can use scanned copies of ID to verify applicant's details. You do NOT need to see the original ID documents. The DBS announcement is here:
