The Personal Licence is not linked to specific premises – once a person has a licence they are qualified to sell alcohol at any premises holding a Premises Licence. Premises supervisors such as the owner, manager, tenant or leaseholder may require a Personal Licence.
The Personal Licence relates only to the supply of alcohol under a Premises Licence. You will not require a Personal Licence for activities including regulated entertainment such as live music or late night refreshment, or for the supply of alcohol under a Club Premises Certificate or Temporary Event Notice.
Every premises must have a Designated Premises Supervisor named on the Premises Licence who is responsible for making or authorising every sale of alcohol, and they must hold a Personal Licence. The only exception is a community premises that has successfully applied to disapply the Designated Premises Supervisor (DPS) requirement under section 41D of the Licensing Act 2003.
Applications for a Personal Licence must be made to the licensing authority where the applicant lives. You must be over 18 years old and hold a licensing qualification – for example the Highfield Award for Personal Licence Holders (APLH) Level 2. The aim of the qualification is to ensure that licence holders are aware of licensing law and the wider social responsibilities involved in the sale of alcohol.
The requirement to renew Personal Licences has been abolished with effect from 1 April 2015, therefore the expiry date on your licence and card are no longer valid. Please note that if you change your name or address, or lose your Personal Licence, you will need to apply for a reissue of your licence.
