DBS forms are available from the Licensing Office.

Please note that the DBS application form, once completed, must be submitted in person to the Licensing Office together with the supporting methods of identification.

DBS Check

Please note it is the driver's or applicant's responsibility to ensure that an annual DBS check is recorded with the licensing office as failure to do so will result in the suspension of the licence until a DBS check is carried out.
