Employer Guide: DBS Checks For Taxi Drivers (2023)

Drivers are required to have DBS checks for taxi drivers, with an Enhanced DBS Check being the level which needs to be applied for by their employer.

If the company has a contract with a care home working with vulnerable adults, or a contract with a school to transport children, then they will require the barred list check for the respective group.

What Does an Enhanced DBS Check Show?

Enhanced DBS checks show a history of all spent and unspent convictions, final warnings and reprimands.

Any information that the local police consider relevant for disclosure is also contained.

If the person receiving the DBS check has any of these, they will show up on the certificate.

An Enhanced DBS Check with Children’s and Adult’s Barred List, will also include the result of a check against the children’s and adults’ barred lists to see if they are banned from working with these groups.

The employer will then decide if they want to hire based on the returned DBS check result.
