Types of DBS check

There are four types of DBS check:

  • a basic check, which shows unspent convictions and conditional cautions
  • a standard check, which shows any unspent and spent  convictions, reprimands, final warnings and cautions
  • an enhanced check, which is the same as a standard check but in addition includes any information held by local police that’s considered relevant to the role
  • an enhanced check with barred lists, which is the same as an enhanced check but in addition includes if you’re on the list of people barred from doing the role

Our system is easy to use and takes just a few minutes for you to register. Once you have registered and added the people that require a criminal record check we will take over the process from there.
