DBS Information

DBS Central specialises in making the DBS check process simple for both individual clients and companies. The steps involved in the process is explained clearly and our support team is always available either by email, live chat or telephone (within working hours). Our team will streamline the process to suit you or your business. All submitted information is vetted by our trained team who will get in touch if amendments are required.

Various jobs in the UK will require that you have completed a DBS check before you start working. There are 7 different types of checks. The type of check is dependent on your occupation.

You can find a comprehensive list of industry roles and the required checks here.

Your DBS check will arrive by post within 7 to 14 working days and can be used all over the UK – this service is not limited to those only in Scotland.


If your document requires legalisation you will need to obtain this from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO). You can do this easily by sending your document to the following address once it has been officially stamped:

Corporate Governance
PO Box 250
