Personal licences


A Personal Licence allows an individual to supply alcohol, or to authorise the supply of alcohol, in accordance with a premises licence. These licences are portable between different premises in England and Wales.

The renewal date for Personal Licences has now been removed and there is no requirement for you to renew the licence. However, if you want the expiry date removing from your personal licence and/or your home address updating, please inform us of the new details.

A fee of £10.50 is charged for this service.
