Changes to ID documents checks

IDENTITY CHECKS FOR STANDARD AND ENHANCED UK CRIMINAL CHECKS

The documents that need to be seen during the face to face identity check for criminal record checks (Standard and Enhanced) in England & Wales are changing. Although you will still be able to use most of the document types you have previously used such as passports and driving licences, the full list of options is changing in February. This change has been made by the Disclosure and Barring Service, which is the organisation that searches for convictions and relevant information on the Police National Computer.

The new document list will be presented to candidates on their online screening. To assist you with completing the face to face identity check we have created an ID Check Guide that can be found in the ‘Help Guides’ section after Verifile log in.
