Personal Licence



Personal Licence (APLH)

Looking for a personal licence to allow you to sell alcohol legally on your premises; whether it’s a restaurant, bar or outdoor pop-up? Here at PD Training, we conduct specialised Personal Licence (APLH) training to assist you with getting set up with your latest business venture. 

Our expert team are well-versed in everything related to the qualification, ensuring you take the test with the utmost confidence that you can acquire your Personal Licence (APLH). Once you have attended our course and got to grips with the qualification - and subsequently passed it - you can proceed to apply for an alcohol licence to sell alcohol in England and Wales (if you are planning on opening up shop in Scotland, you’ll want the SCPLH). 

This way of permit acquisition for alcohol licensing has been in place since the passing of the Licensing Law Act of 2003, whereby individuals must have their own valid personal licence if they’re planning on selling alcohol on their premises. Given the complex nature of the laws surrounding alcohol consumption and vending, applicants must have an excellent grasp of alcohol laws and, naturally, be over the age of 18.

The exam itself takes around 40 minutes, outlining quite how much information you need to retain to become a success in this sector of the industry. Our Personal Licence (APLH) training will equip you against the difficult array of questions you can expect from the Personal Licence (APLH) test; especially if you’re currently not clued up on the UK alcohol licensing laws. 

Be aware that there many licensing bodies that conduct the Personal Licence (APLH), including EDI, NCFE, HFAB and BIIAB. The course itself will cover the following elements to ensure it is in-keeping with industry regulation:
