The Level 2 Award for Personal License Holders also known as the personal license is a license issued by a UK council to an individual who has completed the necessary training to ensure they hold all the skills and knowledge required to function effectively while maintaining legal safety standards when working in places such as retail, hospitality or special event industries where the sale of alcohol is taking place.

A Premises License is the license granted by a Licensing Authority to permit licensable activities, such as the sale of alcohol, to take place on-premises. Premises do not have to be a physical building and a Premises License can be granted for moveable structures such as beer tents and burger vans. Licensed premises include restaurants, supermarkets, hotels, hubs, bars, convenience stores, nightclubs, sports clubs, social clubs, premises for entertainment activities and casinos.

After you have done the Personal License training and examination with us, you'll need to apply for your personal license at the local council in your city. You will be required to pay a £37 application fee to your local council. The council will then conduct a complete background check, after checking your qualifications and completing the mandatory background check, the licensing authority will send your Personal License to you.

A Personal Licence is required by anyone authorising the sale of alcohol from a Licensed Premises. All Licensed Premises must have an allocated Personal Licence Holder, known as the Designated Premises Supervisor (DPS). By law, the DPS must authorise every sale of alcohol otherwise selling alcohol can lead to various penalties.

Not everyone who makes a sale has to hold a Personal Licence, as long as a Personal Licence Holder has authorised the sale, however it is advisable to have more than one Personal License holder at any given time in cases of emergencies because if a personal license holder is unavailable or becomes sick the business will have to stop sales or worse, face legal consequences for not following the law.
