- A Personal Licence allows the holder to make and authorise the sale of alcohol. It is required by individuals who may be engaged in making and authorising such sales and supplies. The holder of a Personal Licence does not need to be connected to a particular premises, and once granted, the holder may sell or supply alcohol from any licensed premises in Hereford, Gloucester, Ross on Wye or Redditch. Or anywhere else in England and Wales.
- A Personal Licence holder may also apply for 50 temporary event notices per year (15 per individual premises per calendar year, or a total of 21 days).
- A Personal Licence may be surrendered at any time upon the holder giving the Licensing Authority which issued the Personal Licence a notice to that effect, together with the Personal Licence. It is sufficient to simply write a letter explain the surrender.
- You can only hold one Personal Licence at any one time.
If a Personal Licence holder is convicted of a relevant or foreign offence during the period between submission and determination of the application for a Personal Licence, the holder must, as soon as reasonably practicable, notify their Licensing Authority of the conviction. Failure to do so without reasonable excuse is an offence, subject on conviction to a level 4 fine (£2,500).
If a Personal Licence holder is convicted of a relevant or foreign offence after the Personal Licence is granted the holder must, as soon as reasonably practicable, notify their Licensing Authority of the conviction.
A person who holds a Personal Licence who is charged with a relevant offence must produce the Personal Licence to the court, no later than his first appearance in a Magistrates’ Court in connection with that offence.
If the Personal Licence has been lost or stolen the holder must report the loss to their licensing authority. There is no longer any requirement to notify the police
The holder of a Personal Licence must notify their Licensing Authority which issued the Licence, as soon as reasonably practicable, of any change to his name or address, together with a fee of £10.50. The notice must be accompanied by the Personal Licence, or if this is not possible, the reason why the Personal Licence cannot be produced.
A police officer or a licensing officer can request to examine a Personal Licence when the holder is on licensed premises.
