How to apply for a Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) enhanced check

A Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) enhanced check is mandatory for all coaches taking an England Squash Level 1, 2 or 3 course and costs around £18. This is the highest level of check available to anyone involved in regularly caring for, training, supervising or being in sole charge of children or vulnerable adults. Check out our DBS FAQs for more info.

1) Apply online

We are currently experiencing problems with the DBS application form which we are aware of and are working towards a fix. Once we have resolved the issue, the link will be re-posted on this webpage. Apologies for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience.

2) Verify your documents

During the application process, you'll need to have your ID documents verified at the Post Office. Please follow the instructions on the GB Group website.

Next steps

Once the Post Office have verified your ID documents, the DBS search will commence. This can take up to 60 days, after which you will receive your DBS disclosure in the post. You'll then need to send this to us so we can update your record of achievement.
