Sounds good, but

Independent Safeguarding Authority

If you live in the UK you now need a license to drive your neighbors kids to the boy scouts on Fridays.

It is the first time the true scope has been revealed and will cover even those with the briefest of contact with children.


A Home Office spokesman said the rules for parents were "a commonsense approach", adding: "The UK already has one of the most advanced systems in the world for carrying out checks on all those who work in positions of trust with children and vulnerable adults.

"Set up in the wake of the Soham murders, the new Vetting and Barring Scheme will, from October this year, ensure these regulations are even more rigorous."
