We have resolved the issue that affected DCS today, and service has been restored.
Users can now check GB driving licences and passports again. The separate DVA outage remains in effect.
I’m sorry for the impact that this has had on your users and the service you provide, and the problems this has caused for your team.
Making sure the Document Checking Service is constantly available and robust is our priority and we’ll be doing everything we can to minimise the possibility of outage in the future. We will now start looking into why and how this happened.
