Many people are surprised to discover UK lorry drivers are expected to take a basic DBS check to confirm their suitability for the role.

DBS checks are carried out by the Disclosure and Barring Service. If you live in Scotland, the search will be managed by Disclosure Scotland.

A basic DBS check for a lorry driver is a statutory measure in place for frontline workers across the UK. Under the 1974 Rehabilitation of Offenders Act, DBS checks must be used by employers to ensure their recruits are suitable for work with the public.

The strongest CRB checks are reserved for those who work with children and/ or vulnerable adults.

A basic DBS check for a lorry driver will involve a search for any unspent criminal convictions or conditional cautions.

You can request a basic DBS check for yourself or it can be requested by your employer.

You will receive a DBS certificate once the check is complete. The certificate will display any results found and you will need to share your DBS certificate with your employer to complete the recruitment process.
