You can still gain your personal licence with CPL.

In light of the on-going situation with coronavirus (COVID-19), we have decided to postpone our face-to-face courses. However, you can still complete your training and gain your qualification with a fully online experience. Choose your course from the selection below, and we will do the rest.

Service Plan



A ‘personal licence’ is granted to an individual and it enables that person to make, or to authorise other staff members to make sales of alcohol. To be granted a personal licence you must be at least 18 years old, have gained a recognised Personal Licence Holder’s qualification and not have any unspent, relevant criminal convictions.

The application process
  • Gain the personal licence qualification (APLH or SCPLH).
  • CPL applies for a criminal records check on your behalf.
  • CPL completes and submits your application (accompanied by your criminal record check and PLH certificate) to your local council.
  • personal licence granted.

If you haven’t yet sat your personal licence course:


Who Should Apply for a Personal Licence?

Anyone working in premises licensed to sell alcohol whose job role involves supervising or authorising members of staff to sell alcohol to the public. Managers, assistant managers or supervisors working in pubs, clubs, bars, restaurants, hotels, convenience stores or supermarkets should apply for a personal licence if their job role involves authorising or supervising sales of alcohol from their premises.

If you have already sat and passed your personal licence qualification (APLH or SCPLH), pay online or call 0151 647 1057.
