APLH Personal Alcohol Licence (Learn Online, Test In-Person)

What is a Personal License?

The Level 2 Award for Personal License Holders also known as the personal license is a license issued by a UK council to an individual who has completed the necessary training to ensure they hold all the skills and knowledge required to function effectively while maintaining legal safety standards when working in places such as retail, hospitality or special event industries where the sale of alcohol is taking place.


What is a Personal Licence Course?

To become a Personal Licence Holder, you must complete a course, specially designed for Personal Licence Holders, with a recognised training provider. Hurak has been training aspiring Personal Licence holders for more than 5 years and our course is one of the best out there. Our Level 2 Award for Personal Licence Holders course is accredited by Highfield, which is one of the biggest and oldest Awarding Bodies in the UK. After finishing the course you will be well equipped to sit for an examination with Highfield Qualifications. Once you pass the exam, you will receive an Ofqual Regulated Certificate, also known as a Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF) certificate.


How Do I Get a Personal Licence?

You can present the Ofqual regulated APLH certificate, along with other required documents, to your local council, which will issue you a Personal Licence. After receiving your Personal Licence, you can be appointed as a Designated Premises Supervisor. Any establishment where alcohol is sold is considered a Licenced Premise. Since all Licenced Premises are required to have a DPS always present, having a Personal Licence will open new avenues of employment for you.


What is a Designated Premises Supervisor (DPS)

Did you know that more than 7000 people die every year in the UK in alcohol-related incidents? Responsible consumption of alcohol can lower this number considerably. To ensure that alcohol is sold and consumed responsibly, the government has made it a legal requirement for the sale of alcohol to be authorised by a Designated Premises Supervisor (DPS) who is properly trained in the responsible sale of alcohol and holds a Personal Licence.


Do I need to have a Personal License in order to sell alcohol?

Not everyone who makes a sale has to hold a Personal Licence, as long as a Personal Licence Holder has authorised the sale, however it is advisable to have more than one Personal License holder at any given time in cases of emergency because if a personal license holder is unavailable or becomes sick the business will have to stop sales or worse, face legal consequences for not following the law.
