    I'm 16 and can't quite figure out if you 100% have to have one.

    I am not sure but this website could help you, it is a government website. Here is what I was able to read about self employed from website..

    Self-employed workers
    Individuals and the self-employed cannot apply for a DBS certificate of their own criminal record, as they cannot ask an exempted question of themselves.Options available are:
    1. individuals can get a basic check from Disclosure Scotland which provides details of any ‘unspent’ convictions
    2. a self-employed person who is eligible for a DBS check can ask the organisation that wishes to contract their services to apply for their DBS check
