Cotswold District Council Personal Licence courses can be book with me Johnny Walker on 07970 134 730. I come to you and deliver the one-day Highfield Level 2 Personal Licence course. I cover all of the Cotswolds, Oxfordshire and Worcestershire. If you live in the Cotswolds and are thinking about gaining a Personal Licence, please do call for some free no-obligation advice.
At the end of the course, you will sit a 40 questions mulit-choice exam paper. Smaty pants who gain more than 28 correct answers out of 40 will receive a course completion certificate. It is this certificate that will enable you to apply for a Personal Licence to Cotswolds District Council.
A Personal Licence allows the holder to authorise the sale or supply of alcohol in all venues with a premises licence in England and Wales and this lasts indefinitely. Personal Licence holders can also request up to 50 temporary event notices in each calendar year.
Each premises licence which includes the sale or supply of alcohol must nominate a designated premises supervisor (DPS). They must be a Personal Licence holder and act as a contact point for the police and other responsible authorities in case there are issues with the sale and supply of alcohol.
Only one DPS is required and will normally be responsible for any premises on a day to day basis. You can have more than one Personal Licence holder at a premises and this can be the same person as the premises supervisor.
Any individual can apply for a Personal Licence if they:
- are aged 18 or over;
- have a relevant licensing qualification or is a person of a prescribed description under the Licensing Act, such as the Highfield Level 2;
- have not forfeited a Personal Licence in the previous five years;
- have not been convicted of a relevant offence;
- do not already hold a Personal Licence, or have applied for one, with any licensing authority; and
- have the right to work in the UK. As part of its efforts to support those who conduct right-to-work checks, including employers and Licensing Authorities, the Home Office has developed the online right-to-work checking service, which makes right-to-work checks simpler and more secure. The service enables UK employers and Licensing Authorities to check the current right to work, in real time, of a person who holds either a biometric residence permit (BRP) or a biometric residence card (BRC), or who holds online immigration status issued under the EU Settlement Scheme, and to see whether they are subject to any restrictions. It does this by linking to Home Office data.The system works on the basis of the individual first viewing their own Home Office right-to-work record. They may then share this information with the Licensing Authority if they wish, by providing the ‘share code’ issued to them by the online service. By entering the share code and the applicant’s date of birth, the Licensing Authority will be able to access the individual’s current right-to-work details. This includes the date of expiry, if the individual’s right to work is time limited, and any work-related conditions. The online right to work checking service is available at https://www.gov.uk/view-right-to-work.
