An introduction to Licensing Law (page 3)

The Personal Licence

Just as you take a driving test to enable you to drive cars and then hold a driving licence, so it is with selling alcohol and holding a Personal Licence. Similarly the Personal Licence is "portable" - you can take out a licence in your home town but move to another town and use it there. The licence now lasts indefinitely. (April 2015).

In order to qualify for a Personal Licence an applicant must:

  • be over 18 years of age
  • not had a personal licence forfeited in the previous 5 years
  • possess an accredited licensing qualification (see my separate article on how to get a personal licence)
  • not been convicted of any relevant or foreign offence
