When Can You Request A DBS Reprint Of A Certificate?

You may request a DBS reprint of a certificate if all the following conditions are met:

  • If your DBS certificate was issued over 14 days ago, but you have not received it yet.
  • Your reprint request is made within three months of the date of issue of your certificate.
  • The address you provide for the reprint matches the address on your original DBS application. If you have moved since your application was submitted, you must set up a postal redirection before requesting a reprint, as the check will only be posted to the Current Address as it was provided on your application.
