A personal licence allows an individual to be a Designated Premises Supervisor (DPS) at a licensed premise that sells or supplies alcohol. Holders of a personal licence can sell alcohol, under a premises licence and also authorise others, who do not hold a personal licence, to sell alcohol. If you are starting out in the licensed trade, then you need a personal licence.
Applicants must not be under 18 years of age, and not had a personal licence forfeited within the last five years. You must also hold an accredited licensing qualification and must declare any convictions for any relevant or foreign offence.
You must have the legal right to work in the UK in order to hold a personal licence, proof of which will be required.
Personal licences are issued directly to the person applying for them, and are not transferrable. Once you have been granted a personal licence, you are free to work at any premises which are subject to a premises licence authorising the sale/supply of alcohol, anywhere in England or Wales. You may only hold one personal licence at any time, which will be valid for the whole of your lifetime, but may be revoked if you are convicted of a relevant criminal offence, have to pay an immigration penalty, or are found to have given incorrect or misleading information in your application. Licences will also lapse automatically if your right to work in the UK expires or is revoked.
The personal licence application process requires you to provide a Basic Disclosure. You can apply for a Basic Disclosure through the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS). You can apply online on gov.uk.
If you have no relevant or foreign convictions, are suitably trained and over 18 years of age, then a personal licence is automatically granted on receipt of a valid application. If you have any relevant of foreign convictions and the police make representations against the application, the matter will be referred to a Licensing Sub-Committee. You will be given the opportunity to attend a hearing to address any concerns raised by the police. The committee members will make a decision based on the points raised and the evidence presented to them on the grant or refusal of your licence.
Applicants will need a certificate to demonstrate that they have successfully passed an approved personal licence training course. At the end of my one-day training course, candidates will sit a 40 question exam. The pass rate is 70%, being 28 out of 40. The questions are multi-choice answer selection.
