Personal Licence Holders

Unit: Legal & Social Responsibilties of a personal Licence Holder

Licensing law in England and Wales states that anyone who authorises the sale of alcohol to the public must hold a personal licence.

Those who wish to obtain a personal licence need to apply to their local authority.

Applicants will be asked for a number of things to support their application; one of these is proof that they hold a government approved licensing qualification such as the APLH.

You can rest assured that the APLH covers everything you need to know to pass the qualification’s examination and apply for your personal licence. What’s more, it’s been developed and rigorously piloted with experts from the industry to make sure it truly meets the needs of those who want to succeed.

The APLH covers the syllabus set by government to enable candidates to understand
the law in relation to the:

• Roles, responsibilities and functions of licensing authorities within the
framework of the licensing objectives
• Application process for a personal licence
• Role and legal responsibilities of the personal licence holder, and the
penalties relating to failure to comply with the law

• Content and purpose of operating schedules
• Role and duties of the designated premises supervisor
• Unauthorised and temporary licensable activities
• Rights of entry to licensed premises
