Licences and permits

Support for your Alcohol and Entertainment licence application

We can support you at all stages of your application for a licence under the Licensing Act 2003. We offer pre-application advice, application assistance and a 'Check and Send' service to ensure you get everything right first time, every time. Our support and advice package prices start at just £10, and all charges are made on a cost-only basis - we do not make a profit from these services.


Personal licence holder training

We offer training for the Level 2 Award for personal licence holders. This qualification is aimed at individuals aged 18 or over who work in or are preparing to work in any industry that involves the retail sale of alcohol. The objectives of the training fulfil the main requirements of the Licensing Act 2003 for a personal licence holder.
