Personal licences


A Personal Licence is a portable licence granted to an individual enabling him/her to authorise the sale of alcohol at premises, which are licensed for the sale of alcohol.

This does not apply to sales that take place at premises, which hold a Club Premises Licence, or premises operating under a Temporary Event Notice.

Applications for a Personal Licence must be made to the Council in whose district the applicant lives.

The licence is valid indefinitely, unless cancelled, surrendered or revoked.

More than one Personal Licence Holder can work at the same premises. Applicants may also choose to become a Personal Licence Holder if they wish to apply for more then five Temporary Event Notices a year, but otherwise would not require one.
