Drivers and Transport
If the DBS check is for the purposes of obtaining a private hire license, you will require an Enhanced criminal record check.
Personnel checks are contracted by a number of local authorities across the UK to organise Enhanced DBS checks for these licenses.
Please select which council you will be applying for your Hackney Carriage/Private Hire Driver Licence with;
- Bassetlaw District Council
- Burnley Borough Council
- Liverpool City Council (New application)
- Liverpool City Council (Renewal)
- Luton Borough Council
- Rossendale Borough Council
If the council you would like to apply for your licence with is not on the list above, you should contact the authority where you are obtaining the license from and ask them for instructions on how to apply for your DBS Check.
The Enhanced Check goes into much more detail than the basic check, in order to thoroughly ensure the safety of others. The Enhanced Check shows:
- (upon request) Search the children and/or adult barred list
- Information disclosed from the applicant’s local police station
Other Driving Roles
If the role includes conveying a child or adult for the purposes of health, personal or social care due to age illness or disability you can obtain an Enhanced DBS Check and this will need to be obtained by the company you work for.
