There is no rule about perpetual check. There is the 3 position repetition rule which basically says that if a position occurs 3 times (exactly the same with castling rights, en passant possibilities and side to move the same) then either player may claim a draw. You do so by making the move that makes the 3rd repeat and claiming a draw or claiming a draw alone if the 3rd repeat is currently present.
