Obtaining an Enhanced DBS check can often result in lengthy delays when applying for, or renewing, a taxi badge and brings a substantial administrative burden for council staff.
Personnel Checks have developed a tailored DBS Checking service specifically for Local Authorities as part of our DriveScreen product, along with Driver Licence Checks, streamlining the process for Hackney Carriage/Private Hire badge applicants.
Driver DBS Checks in as Little as 24 Hours
The DriveScreen service offers councils access to a state-of-the-art, online DBS application portal where drivers can obtain a full Enhanced DBS Disclosure in as little as 24 hours.
The application can be completed and the ID documents verified online and submitted to the DBS in as little as 15 minutes. The application is self-checking, meaning errors are identified before being submitted to the DBS. The faster turnaround times for Enhanced DBS Checks results in more badges being issued in less time!
Bespoke DBS Checks for Taxi Drivers
Personnel Checks are able to design packages that can remove the entire DBS application process from your licensing team, allowing them to focus on other, more important tasks.
