What Documents Do I Need for a DBS Check?
The documents an individual needs for a DBS check will depend on which country they are from, and what documentation they have to hand.
Some of the most common documents when applying for a Disclosure and Barring Service check include:
- UK Driving Licence.
- Birth Certificate.
DBS Documents Your Applicant Needs To Have
This falls into two categories:
1. They are from the UK, the European Economic Area, or they are not a UK or EEA national but are doing voluntary work
The documents the applicant will need to provide depends on the route the application takes. Route 1 would be the ideal route, but if this is not possible, it will go to Route 2 or 3.

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

Route 3 can only be used if it’s impossible to process the application through Routes 1 or 2. EEA nationals who’ve been a resident in the UK for less than 5 years, can’t use Route 3.For Route 3, you must be able to show:
At least one of the documents must show your current address, and if you can’t provide these documents, you may need to be fingerprinted.

However, Route 1 can be used by adult household members:
