Routes for ID verification

Download full list of acceptable ID

There are three possible routes to process a DBS depending on the valid ID you have available.  You must try to provide documents from route one first.

Route one

You must be able to show:

  • One document from group 1
  • Two further documents from either Group 1, or Group 2a or 2b, below.  At least one of the documents must show your current address.
Route two

If you don’t have any documents in Group 1, then you must be able to show:

  • One document from Group 2a
  • Two further documents from either Group 2a or 2b. At least one of the documents must show your current address. We will also have to use an appropriate external ID validation service to check the application.
Route three

Route three is only used if it’s impossible to process the application through routes one or two. For route three, you must be able to show:

  • A birth certificate issued after the time of birth (UK and Channel Islands)
  • One document from Group 2a
  • Three further documents from Group 2a or 2b. At least one of the documents must show your current address.

If you cannot provide enough documentation for any of these routes then we will have to confirm to DBS that we cannot verify your identity. You will be sent to your local police station for fingerprinting.
