A Personal Licence, issued under the Licensing Act 2003, is designed to ensure that anybody running or managing a business that sells or supplies alcohol will do so in a professional fashion. Once you receive your Personal Licence, you can act as the Designated Premises Supervisor for any business that sells or supplies alcohol.
Premises licensed to sell alcohol must have a Designated Premises Supervisor. A DPS must hold a Personal Licence.
If you are applying for a Personal Licence, you must obtain a 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.
I deliver the one-day Highfield Level 2 Personal Licence course at your premises, on a date that suits your schedule. I can also offer either a Saturday or Sunday course too. I have a 99% pass rate for candidates. Don’t leave things to chance, call me for details. I can answer all your questions about being granted a Personal Licence.
A Personal Licence is granted to individuals aged 18 or over who can fulfil certain criteria. You will need a certificate to demonstrate that you have passed a Level 2 Personal Licence course, and further, also demonstrate you have no ‘relevant offences’. By the way, ‘spent offences’ are of no interest to licensing, there is no requirement to disclose these.
Once a Personal Licence is granted by your local licensing authority, it allows the holder to become the Designated Premises Supervisor (DPS) at a licensed premise that sells or supplies alcohol.
The law was amended in 2015 to remove the expiry date on Personal Licences, so even if your licence has an expiry date printed in it there is no need to renew it.
You must report any change in your name or address to the issuing authority even if your new address is outside that borough. There is a fee of £10.50 to cover the costs of a replacement Personal Licence.
A Personal Licence may not be issued to an individual who is resident in the UK who:
- does not have the right to live and work in the UK, or
- is subject to a condition preventing him or her from doing work relating to the carrying on of a licensable activity
