Why Apply For DBS Checks Online?
You can apply for DBS Checks in one of two ways:
- By hand, which involves posting a written application form to the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS), or
- Online, which can be filled out using our online application form that is automatically sent to the DBS for processing.
Why do so many people choose to apply for their DBS Checks online?
The answer is that there are four big benefits to applying for a DBS Check online – speed of processing, less mistakes, fully supported, and simple pricing structure.
Let’s take a look at the four benefits in more detail.
1. Speed of processing
One of the primary benefits of getting a DBS Check carried out online is the speed with which it can be processed – usually within 48 hours when you use our streamlined application process.
We take your DBS Check application form, check it, verify your identity, then send it to the DBS – usually within 24 hours of receiving the online form. The DBS are often able to process it within a further 24 hours and we can reveal the results to you by email and on your dashboard.
DBS Checks can be processed and returned even more quickly, sometimes within hours even. You can stay up to date with the progress of your application by logging in to your dashboard that gives you a status update.
2. Less errors
Applying for a DBS Check online using our service is straightforward and very intuitive. The online application form takes you through everything step-by-step and it automatically prompts you to fill in any missing information or details. The form can be completed in less than 30 minutes in most cases.
Our online application system will also look for common mistakes, such as missing dates and misspelling and prompt you to correct them. If mistakes like these are submitted on a paper form it can slow down the application process considerably.
You can check on the status of your application at any time in the dashboard and even set automatic notifications to inform you when the DBS Check has been processed or when additional information is required.
3. 24/7 support
We have a team of advisors that are always ready to help you out, should you need it. You can dial up the helpline or use the online chat feature, and they’ll immediately help you with any issues you’re having – whether you’re unsure about the identification information you need to provide or you’re not sure how to proceed with your application.
The rules and regulations around DBS Checks can be difficult to understand. Our service can help you to decide what level of check to get, how to meet regulatory compliance, and to understand the process from start to finish.
All of our team members are highly trained, with plenty of experience in the area of DBS Checking and legislation. You can call upon them at any time to assist during the application process.
