Personal Licence Course


Accredited Course: Personal Licence Course – Level 2 Award for Personal Licence Holders (APLH)

Qualification accreditation number 500/9974/7

This qualification, regulated by both Ofqual and the Home Office, has been designed to meet the statutory requirements of the Licensing Act 2003. Furthermore, whilst comprehensively covering the full framework as set down by the Government, this qualification is extremely straight-forward, user-friendly and free from unnecessary jargon. It also provides excellent value for money without compromising on quality.

Achievement of this qualification forms an essential part of the personal licence application. It enables those selling or authorising alcohol sales to operate both legally and responsibly.

Attendees of this Personal Licence Course will receive a fully accredited certificate upon successful completion of the examination, which can then be used to apply for the Personal Alcohol Licence.

What does it cover?

The aim of this qualification is to provide individuals with essential knowledge of the legal framework surrounding the sale of alcohol in England and Wales. This includes key information on the responsibilities of personal licence holders, duties of the designated premises supervisor, the role of licensing authorities and police powers regarding licensed premises.


Exam and Certificate

Exam: It is assessed by a 40-question multiple-choice examination which takes 40-60 minutes to complete. Learners must achieve a mark of at least 28 in order to pass.

    Lynda Andrews

    Attended my course in December 2017. Service was speedy and efficient, and regular emails to update me on the progress of my application were very encouraging. Well worth paying the additional cost for them to submit your application and obtain your DBS clearance, as this saved so much time and effort with document and ID verification. Venue was good, and delivery of the course was well planned and easily understood. However, I would HIGHLY recommend that applicants study and revise the accompanying handbook prior to the course.

    Can’t recommend this company enough! Ellen was very helpful from the day I booked the day till the day I eventually booked a date for my exam and the ‘tutor’ on the day was very good and very patient too. There are others in my company who need to do this so I will be booking again on their behalf.

    Very easy company to deal with, answered all my queries before and after I booked the course really quickly and sent me an online booklet which was very useful. The course location was near the train station and started at a reasonable time. The trainer we had was very good at making quite a heavy subject very understandable in such a short time and I was confident going into the exam despite only deciding to do the course the week before and never having worked in the industry! I did pas and I’m very grateful to Aneta and all at globeus training thank you!

    Rowen Tweedy

    Very expensive for what it was. You get a course book emailed to you before the day, but the email doesn’t tell you how important it is to revise, as on the actual day most information is summarised and less detailed. Lady teacher was very friendly, answered all questions but was a little hard to understand due I her accent.
