Recieved letter regarding the DBS checks to be done by AAT. Do other bodies require you to send the orginl documents for verifying your identy. I have been told that I need to send by post either my current passport, driving licence or the birth certificate produce when I was born.
I have mentioned to them that firstly I don't want to send my passport by post at the start of the summer hoildays with no idea when it will be returned. Also sending my driving licence could have the problem if I am stopped by the police and given a producer ( which usually gives you 7 days to produce documents).
Why in this day and age can't these bodies who can check if we have a criminal record not be able to confirm our identity via electronic ways using either the driving licence number or passport number.
Am I being silly in refusing to send my valueable documents by post?
