Update on what is acceptable to use as ID for a DBS check if your new passport hasn't arrived.
Expired UK passports can be used as id (gov.uk).
The DBS say, 'We are aware that it is taking longer than usual to process UK passport applications, as a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. In response to this, DBS will temporary allow expired UK passports to be used for ID checking purposes, if within 6 months of their expiry date. The applicant must be in possession of their expired passport, to use it as an identity document. Read guidelines.
