A Personal Licence authorises an individual to sell alcohol by retail, supply or authorise the supply of alcohol. The Personal Licence is ‘portable’ and will allow the Personal Licence holder to work in any premises in Leominster and any premises in England or Wales holding a valid premises licence which permits the supply of alcohol.
The Personal Licence consists of a durable credit card style permit stating your name, address, licence details and photograph and a counterpart document stating your name, address, licence details and any relevant or foreign unspent convictions.
If you change your name or address you must inform the licensing authority. You must return your licence to the issuing authority, if you live in Leominster, it will be Herefordshire licensing, and pay a fee of £10.50. Herefordshire licensing authority will then issue an amended Personal Licence.
If you are charged with a relevant offence you must inform the court immediately that you are a Personal Licence holder. If you are subsequently convicted you will have to inform the issuing licensing authority and return your Personal Licence so that the offence can be endorsed on it.
