Award for Personal Licence Holders (APLH)

If you wish to apply for a Personal Licence to allow you to supply alcohol, as part of the application process you must obtain this certificate as it is a statutory requirement under the Licensing Act 2003.

A Personal Licence is required if you wish to become a Designated Premises Supervisor (DPS) and to enable a person to supply or authorise the supply of alcohol in accordance with a premises licence. Selling alcohol by retail will include all these establishments, on-sales or off-sales from pubs, bars, hotels, restaurants, night clubs, shops, supermarkets, entertainment venues.  Mail order or internet sales will also require this. It is common good practice for bar staff and cashiers to obtain this qualification to enable them to fully understand and work within the legal requirements

Candidates who successfully complete and pass the multi-choice examination from the Awarding Body, HABC - Highfield Awarding Body for Compliance will be awarded the:
