Personal Licence Application

Personal Licence Application

If you’re planning to work in a pub, restaurant, hotel, shop or any location that sells alcohol, you’ll need a Personal Licence which can be obtained by making a personal licence application to the local licensing authority in the area in which you live.

A Personal Licence is a licence required for individuals who will authorise the sale or supply of alcohol on a licensed premises. While it is true that you can sell alcohol without a Personal Licence, provided that you have been authorised to do so by a Personal Licence holder, it is best to have your own Personal Licence.

Doing so promises dual benefits by improving job prospects while also keeping you on the right side of the law by selling alcohol responsibly.


How to Apply for a Personal Licence

The first step in attaining a Personal Licence is to obtain the relevant qualification. We recommend the APLH, also known as the Award for Personal Licence Holders.

Making a Personal Licence application is not a particularly difficult process, but it can be time consuming to locate an APLH course in your area while also dealing with your Criminal Record check and your local authority as part of your application. But at Personal Licence Application Service, we are committed to simplifying the process for you.
