We are now processing Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) Identity Verification (IDV) checks through the Post Office

We will no longer require you to attend a virtual or face-to-face IDV check at a CIW office.

When completing your online application form, you will be prompted by the online application system to arrange an IDV check appointment at an available Post Office of your choice. There is a small administration charge of £12 for this service.

Find out more information about the new DBS Identity Checks process through the Post Office on the DBS section of our website. If you have any queries please email us at
