When applying for a Personal Licence applicants need to complete the Personal Licence application, and Personal Licence disclosure of convictions forms.
More than one individual at the licensed premises may hold the Personal Licence, although it is not necessary for all staff to be licensed. All supplies of alcohol under a premises licence must be made by or under the authority of a Personal Licence holder.
The Personal Licence relates only to the supply of alcohol under a premises licence in Malvern Hills. An individual will not require a Personal Licence for other licensable activities, such as the provision of regulated entertainment or late night refreshment, or for the supply of alcohol under a club premises certificate or temporary event notice.
A Personal Licence does not authorise its holder to supply alcohol anywhere, but only from establishments with a premises licence authorising the supply of alcohol in accordance with the premises licence. An individual may hold only one Personal Licence at any one time.
All Personal Licences granted will last for an indefinite period and no longer need to be renewed after ten years. The responsibility is still upon the Personal Licence holder to inform the council of any changes to the licence, ie, change of address or convictions for a relevant offence.
All Premises Licences authorising the supply of alcohol must have an identified Personal Licence holder, known as the designated premises supervisor. More than one individual at the licensed premises may hold the Personal Licence, although it is not necessary for all staff to be licensed. All supplies of alcohol under a Premises Licence must be made by or under the authority of a Personal Licence holder.

To qualify for a Personal Licence, the applicant must fulfill certain criteria;
- the applicant is aged 18 or over; • no Personal Licence held by him or her has been forfeited within the period of five years before making the application; • he or she possesses an accredited licensing qualification, or is a person of a prescribed description; and • he or she has not been convicted or any relevant or foreign offence. • Hold a criminal check (issue date must be within one month when applying for the application for a Personal Licence). • provide proof of right to work in the UK.
If the applicant meets all these criteria, the Personal Licence will be granted. If any of these are not met, the licensing authority must reject the application. The authority must notify the Chief Officer of Police for its area if it appears that an applicant has been convicted of any relevant or foreign offence.
The application must be accompanied by a Licensing Qualification that has been accredited by the Home Secretary. This ensures that Personal Licence holders are aware of licensing law and the wider social responsibilities attached to the sale of alcohol. The qualification must be obtained and the original certificate submitted with a complete application. The original certificate will be returned to the applicant once the council has accepted the application as complete.
I deliver the Highfield Level 2 award for Personal Licence holders. The course takes one day and ends with a multi-choice exam paper. Successful candidates who score at least 28 marks out of 40, will receive a certificate. It is this certificate that applicants will need to demonstrate they have passed the course.
