You must get a criminal record check if you’re an approved driving instructor (ADI) and want to renew your registration.
You can’t use one you have already - you must get a new one.
There’s a different service if you’re applying to become an ADI for the first time.
Start now on the Online Disclosures service
You can’t apply for your criminal record check more than 6 months before your ADI registration runs out. It normally takes around 3 months but can take longer.
What happens next
You must go to a Post Office offering the ‘CRB and ID verification service’ and give proof of your identity. The service costs £6.
You’ll need to take a printed page from your online application with barcodes on it and 3 of the following types of ID:
- your passport
- your driving licence
- a utility bill that’s less than 3 months old
- a bank statement that’s less than 3 months old
They must be originals not copies.
There’s a different way to get a criminal record disclosure to renew your ADI registration in Northern Ireland.
