Call me, Johnny walker on 07970 134 730 for details of how to book a Personal Licence course at your premises. I can also deliver the course on either a Saturday or a Sunday in the Malvern Hills area. Many candidates find this an advantage as they do not have to alter their working week to attend a course.
A Personal Licence allows the holder to authorise sales of alcohol at a licensed premises and to be named as the Designated Premises Supervisor on a premises licence. This applies to all premises in Malvern and Malvern Hills, as well as anywhere else in England and Wales.
Once you receive your Personal Licence, you can act as the designated premises supervisor for any business that sells alcohol.
The Deregulation Act 2015 means that Personal Licences no longer need to be renewed. The Personal Licence will continue until it is either surrendered or revoked and the expiry date no longer applies.
You need a Personal Licence to authorise the sale or supply of alcohol, for consumption on or off a premises.
An individual can apply for a Personal Licence whether or not he/she is currently employed or has business interests associated with the use of the licence. The licensing of individuals separately from the licensing of premises permits the movement of Personal Licence holders from one premises to another, allowing greater flexibility.
To apply for a Personal Licence you must be aged 18 or over and apply to the licensing authority where you live. Applications must be made by post, as original documents for your criminal record check and the qualification certificate must be checked.
All supplies of alcohol under a Premises Licence must be made by or under the authority of a Personal Licence holder, known as the designated premises supervisor.
All applicants for a Personal Licence must:
- be over 18
- hold a relevant licensing qualification
- provide a criminal record check that is no more than one month from the date of issue
- provide two passport sized photographs
- provide a disclosure of convictions and declaration
- provide right to work/immigration status
- pay the fee of £37
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.
Holders of a Personal Licence are not authorised to supply alcohol anywhere, but only from establishments with a Premises Licence.
If you are applying for a Personal Licence, you must obtain an accredited qualification first. 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.
