DBS offers a number of online services, including the Update Service, DBS online accounts and online tracking.
Access the Update Service here.
The Update Service is an online subscription that allows you to keep your standard or enhanced certificates up-to-date, and allows employers to check a certificate online.
You can join the Update Service as soon as you have your application form reference number.
