Our Process and Prices


We are here to help you through the DBS checking process every step of the way. Our online system has been designed with simplicity in mind, making it easy to use for everyone. Applications can be completed in less than five minutes, with an average turnaround of 48 hours for results to be issued.

Our online platform has been built based on customer feedback, ensuring it is efficient and hassle free. The simple design means an applicant can complete their own personal information, whilst allowing the employer to select the level of check required, as well as complete the ID check.


Here at CRB Check Online, we don’t charge any ongoing or registration fees. This means it’s completely free to open an account and all you pay for are the disclosures you request. You won’t even need to commit to processing a certain number of checks, meaning it’s completely pay as you go.

Our charges for processing each level of DBS check are stated below. The total cost for each check covers the entire cost from application to receipt of the certificate and includes VAT.
