DBS Check Courier | Courier DBS Check | DBS & CRB Check for Couriers

Start my check

You may be surprised to learn, couriers in the UK are subject to a basic DBS check. DBS checks are statutory searches of criminal records to verify suitability for a role. They are carried out by the Disclosure and Barring Service with the intention to keep the public, particularly children and vulnerable adults, safe.

A basic DBS check for a courier will require a search for any unspent criminal convictions or conditional cautions. ...more

Under the 1974 Rehabilitation of Offenders Act, roles which involve a level of engagement with the public are required to undergo a DBS check as set out in the act. There are four types of DBS check in operation:

  • Basic DBS
  • Standard DBS
  • Enhanced DBS
  • Enhanced DBS with barring lists

The act sets out the type of CRB check needed for each role, according to the degree of unsupervised contact with the public the job will involve. Those who work in closest contact with children and vulnerable adults are subject to the highest level check.

A basic DBS check for a courier is a first tier search that does not involve the disclosure of spent convictions.
