Purpose

Anyone supplying alcohol or authorising this must hold a Personal Licence. Also, a premises licence covering the sale of alcohol will require a personal licence holder to be named on the licence as the Designated Premises Supervisor (DPS). Some premises may need a number of additional people with personal licences working there, depending on how they are managed.

From 1 April 2015 it is no longer necessary to renew a personal licence once it is 10 years old.
