DBS - WVA form guidance

Through our experience processing the DBS forms we have found some common issues that occur.  We would like to draw your attention to a few parts of the form and to make your process as smooth and efficient as possible, here are some tips for completing your details…

Firstly ensure that the position being applied for is eligible for DBS checking.  It is against the law to check people who do not need to be checked.  The person NEEDS be performing some form of regulated activity to require a check.  More information on regulated activity can be found on Gov.uk/DBS

 

FOR THE APPLICANT

  • COMPLETE THE FORM IN BLACK INK
  • Complete ALL the yellow sections.

  • Leave an empty box between words.
  • If you answer ‘yes’ and ‘no’ by mistake – mark the CORRECT one with a CIRCLE

 

A2/A3. –      Please use your full official name – it is very tempting to use your given or taken name as that is what you use day to day but your full name is required here.
