Police Checks Information

In order for you to work with vulnerable adults in the UK, a South African police clearance is required.

We recommend using the following companies to get the fastest check possible.

True Lies

Based in Cape Town. Must go into their office to provide finger prints. Cost around R150.

Star Personnel Recruitment

Must go into office to provide finger prints. Around R170.

“I went to Star Personnel as recommended and the test was done electronically within 15 minutes. Because they were closing for the holidays, they did a four hour feedback test which cost slightly more at R285. This was money well spent to get the results so speedily.”


They offer 2 types of check (both are the same but take different periods of time.) (Durban North office only takes cash payment).

  • 24-48 hours (R182.40)
  • 5 hours (R392.16)

Some of the offices are run by the company Express Employment Professionals.


Google this to see if any security firms are doing Police Checks in your area. These are normally 48 hour checks.

We do not recommend using:

Police Station and Courier service. 14 day wait. R370.
