Personal Licensing

It is required by law that all sales of alcohol taking place on licensed premises in England and Wales must be authorised by a personal licence holder. In order to apply for a personal licence, you must hold an accredited licensing qualification.

Our nationally recognised Level 2 Award for Personal Licence Holders (APLH) qualification is approved and fully accredited by The Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation(Ofqual). This 1-day training course has been designed to meet the statutory requirements and includes vital information on the responsibilities of personal licence holders, duties of the designated premises supervisor(DPS), the role & powers of licensing authorities and police regarding licensed premises.

Applications for a licence should be made to the local authority where you live. Once granted, your licence will be valid for an indefinite period of time.

Applying for Personal Licence:

After passing the exam the applicants need to make an application to their local council/licensing authority to obtain a licence. Following documents would also be needed along with the licence application form:

♦ Level 2 Award for Licence Holders (APLH) qualification certificate

♦ DBS check (this replaces the CRB check)  - The DBS check certificate can be applied online at disclosurescotland.co.uk  for £25  (Please note: the validity of this check is only 28 days)

♦ Two passport-size photos - Signed by a professional to prove the identity of the applicant

♦ Application fee payable to the licensing authority - £37

 All of the above must be submitted to the local council (where the applicant lives) in order to apply for the licence to sell alcohol.

Alternatively, we at Safetymark Training provide a fast track service using our team of experts who regularly deal with all of the local authorities meaning we are able to process your applications in a professional and speedy manner saving you time and money.

"Safetymark Training and Consultant is an Incredible place to Learn & achieve your Licenses for many Business purposes at an affordable price compared to its competitors. I'm just 19 and gained my Personal license thanks to Mr Fareed, who is there with you all the way until you've acquired the license. I had the opportunity to learn and experience more about the Alcohol Laws before I start my retail business. Will definitely recommend to all the people I could and keep in contact. Thanks a lot Fareed :)"
