A Personal Licence allows an individual to be a Designated Premises Supervisor (DPS) at a licensed premise that sells or supplies alcohol.
Applicants must not be under 18 years of age, and not had a Personal Licence forfeited within the last five years. You must also hold an accredited licensing qualification and must declare any convictions for any relevant or foreign offence.
Applicants must be entitled to work in the UK and must not be subject to a condition preventing them from doing work relating to the carrying on of a licensable activity. A licence will become invalid if the holder ceases to be entitled to live and work in the UK.
The law regarding Personal Licences is detailed in Part 6 of the Licensing Act 2003 and also in the Licensing Act 2003 (Personal Licences) Regulations 2004.
The Act defines a ‘Personal Licence’ as a licence which is granted to an individual which authorises them to sell alcohol or to supply alcohol in accordance with a premises licence.
A Personal Licence lasts indefinitely unless revoked, or forfeited.
During the lifetime of a licence, the licence holder has a duty to notify the Licensing Authority of any change in their name or address.
A licence holder also has a duty to notify a court that they hold a personal licence if they are charged with a relevant offence (Schedule 4 of the Act outlines which offences are deemed as relevant offences).
A licence holder also has a duty to notify the Licensing Authority should they be convicted of a relevant or foreign offence and must provide their licence to the Licensing Authority for updating.
A licence holder also has a duty to produce their Personal Licence when asked to do so by a police officer or an authorised officer of the Licensing Authority at the premises where they are authorising the sale or supply of alcohol.
