Ours do 6 monthly checks. How do you know that yours are not doing 6 m0nthnly checks? Could it be because they have kept your details on file so that they don't need to ask you for them every 6 months? However that would be illegal.

Ours is definitely still doing 3 year checks, I opted for the update service 3 years ago, very few opted for the service and now taxi Licencing are now asking all drivers to do a new DBS next month.
Sent a copy of my DBS with access code this week, and told all good for another 3 years.
