Employment checks - passenger transport contractors and employees

Drivers and passenger assistants working on our transport contracts must have DBS certificate and a valid County Council DBS badge.

Guidance for passenger transport applicants

Please read the  transport operators applicant guidance document (pdf / 316 KB). Once the check is completed, you will be notified of your result via your employer. It should take no more than four weeks to complete the process and issue one of our badges to your employer, where appropriate.

Applying for our DBS badge

In addition to the check, drivers and passenger assistants must carry one of our badges while on transport contracts.

To obtain a badge, complete a  vetting procedures consent form (pdf / 32 KB). This needs to be printed, completed and submitted via your verifier, who will check it and your evidence of identity, to our integrated passenger transport team. Failure to supply a signed vetting procedures consent form and photograph will delay the process.
