You can track your DBS application here to find out which stage your applicant form is at. There are multiple stages to criminal record checks, and sometimes delays can occur due to circumstances beyond our control.
DBS online tracking could help you to estimate how long you may be waiting until you receive your DBS certificate. If you notice a delay at any particular stage, you could get in touch with the Disclosure and Barring service directly.
How to use DBS online tracking
To complete a DBS status check, you will need your DBS applicant form reference, which should have been emailed to you when you completed your application. You will also need to enter the applicant date of birth.
About DBS online tracking
Please note than the DBS tracking service is only available for Standard & Enhanced Disclosures.
The DBS tracking service is offered by the Disclosure & Barring Service and not OnlineDBSchecks.co.uk. If you did not apply for a DBS check via this site, please contact the DBS directly on 0300 0200 190.
Delays with enhanced DBS application forms
Please be aware that the Disclosure & Barring Service are experiencing delays with the Police check stage of Enhanced Disclosures. If when performing a DBS status check your application appears to be stuck at Stage 4, we recommend that you contact the DBS on 0300 0200 190.
