If you are between the age of 45-65 you will be asked to obtain a Medical certificate every 5 years. If you are aged 65 or over you will be asked to obtain a Medical certificate annually. Please ensure that if this applies to you that you have obtained the certificate before proceeding.

You will be asked to visit a Post Office and pay £12.75 to have your ID documents verified. You will then need to send Personnel Checks your verified documents.
Throughout the application process you will need to have 3 ID documents verified. Please confirm that you have the following documents to use:

You will be asked to visit the Council’s offices to present 3 ID documents. The Council will then confirm to Personnel Checks that this has been done and your application will be processed. There is no charge for this service.
