Level 2 Personal Licence Holders

What’s a Personal Licence Holder?

Do you want to sell alcohol as part of your business? As well as having a licenced premise, the law requires you to have an allocated personal licence holder. This is the assigned person who needs to authorise all sales of alcohol. They can also be known as a DPS which stands for designated premises supervisor.

In order to obtain a personal licence, you must be over the age of 18 and complete a number of courses and checks including a Level 2 Award for Personal Licence Holders Qualification Certificate.
