A licence to sell alcohol
Personal licences allow you to sell alcohol on behalf of any business that has a premises licence or a club premises certificate in a similar way way that a driving licence allows you to drive a car.
You do not have to hold a personal licence to be employed in a pub or other business that sells alcohol. Premises licensed to sell alcohol must have a designated premises supervisor, who holds a personal licence.
Anyone who does not hold a personal licence must be authorised to sell alcohol by a personal licence holder. There is no such requirement for the supply of alcohol in a members’ club.
