Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) applications

DBS applications can now be made online and the licensing team will inform you if a DBS is due. You must apply for an enhanced DBS; any other type will be rejected and your application will not be processed.


Drivers who are due a medical but are unable to get a GP appointment, renewal applications will be accepted however a drivers licence (badge) will only be issued for 6 months. The remaining time will be issued once the outstanding medical has been received by licensing.
