Personal licences

A personal licence allows an individual to authorise the sale or supply of alcohol under the Licensing Act 2003.

Anyone who wants a personal licence has to pass a test covering licensing issues, and will be subject to a check for previous criminal convictions.

The personal licence costs £37 and can move with its holder from licensed premises to licensed premises anywhere in England and Wales.
