Fee reductions for DBS checks

It’s not often something official goes down in price. However, with effect from 1 October 2019, the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) will be reducing the fees for DBS checks.

DBS has conducted a fee review and as a result, the fees for DBS checks will reduce as follows:

Type of DBS check Current fee Fee from 1 October 2019
Basic DBS check £25.00 £23.00
Standard DBS check £26.00 £23.00
Enhanced DBS check £44.00 £40.00

The fee for the Update Service will remain the same, at £13 per year.

Standard and enhanced volunteer applications will remain free-of-charge.
