Anyone who plans to sell or to authorise the sale or supply of alcohol must apply for a Personal Licence. Before applying for a Personal Licence you will need to have obtained a Level 2 Award for Personal Licence Holders. I deliver the Highfield one day Personal Licence course in Portsmouth. No need to hunt down a course miles away, I come to your premises and deliver the Personal Licence course just for you.
A Personal Licence holder may also submit up to 50 Temporary Event Notices in each calendar year for the supply of alcohol, regulated entertainment or late night refreshments other than under the terms of a Premises Licence.
Section 36 of, and Schedule 4 to the Immigration Act 2016 (the 2016 Act) amend the 2003 Act to provide that in England and Wales:
Premises licences to sell alcohol or provide late night refreshment and Personal Licences cannot be issued to an individual who does not have permission to be in the UK, or is not entitled to undertake work relating to the carrying on of a licensable activity.
Please note that there is no requirement to renew your Personal Licence if the expiry date is after 1st May 2015.
However if your personal details have changed since your Personal Licence was issued, there is a requirement to inform the issuing Local Authority of these changes.
The fee payable on a change of address or name application is £10.50 and you will be required to return both parts of your original Personal Licence.
A Personal Licence allows an individual to authorise the sale or supply of alcohol. In most cases, premises with a premises licence will need at least one Personal Licence holder where one of their activities is the sale or supply of alcohol
Personal licences were first granted in 2005, valid for 10 years. Section 115 of the Licensing Act 2003 has been amended by the Deregulation Act 2015 removing the requirement to renew a Personal Licence with effect from 1 April 2015. Unless a Personal Licence is surrendered, suspended, revoked or forfeited, it has effect indefinitely regardless of any expiry date on the licence. For applications made on or after 6 April 2017, a licence granted to someone subject to immigration control will lapse if the individual ceases to be entitled to work in the UK.
Personal Licence holders have a duty to notify the licensing authority of any change in their name or address and a replacement licence will be issued on payment of the statutory fee of £10.50. The licence holder is also under a duty to notify any convictions for relevant or foreign offences to the licensing authority. There is provision for the suspension/forfeiture of a Personal Licence by the courts and licensing authorities where a Personal Licence holder has been convicted of a relevant or foreign offence or been required to pay an immigration penalty. In the case of licensing authorities, this provision only applies to convictions received on or after 6 April 2017.
Any premises, except qualifying clubs, that sell or supply alcohol will need at least one Personal Licence holder, one of whom must be named on the premises licence as the Designated Premises Supervisor. There is an exception for community premises in respect of which a successful application has been made to disapply the usual mandatory conditions.
