Our DBS Tracking Service

Our online system has an inbuilt DBS tracking tool, allowing you to check the progress of each DBS application you submit, hassle-free. 

You will be updated via email whenever there is a change in the status of your DBS application. 

With DBS checks, there are sometimes delays, usually with an individual police force. The use of the inbuilt tracking system allows you to see the cause of these unavoidable delays and keep you informed about what’s happening.

You Can Also Track Your DBS Online

You can also manually track your DBS Check if you have used a paper form, or just want to see the progress of a DBS / CRB check at any time. 

All you need is the unique DBS application form reference number and the applicant's date of birth.
