Personal Licence Training

Who is the qualification for?

The Level 2 Award for Personal Licence Holder qualification is for people working in industry that involves the sale of alcohol.

This qualification will form part of your formal application for your Personal License.

A Personal Licence Holder can also serve up to a maximum of 50 Temporary Event Notices each year.

Under the Licensing Act 2003, any Premises Licence, which authorises the sale of alcohol, must specify a Designated Premises Supervisor (DPS).  The DPS must be a Personal Licence Holder. Every sale of alcohol under a Premises Licence must be made or authorised by a Personal Licence Holder.
