What is the process?

Upon completion of an APLH or SCPLH, you will be in a position to make an official application to your Local Licensing Authority to obtain a Licence. This must be made to the relevant Licensing Offices who take jurisdiction over your residential address, whether based at your local council or Licensing Partnership. Once found, a valid Application must be made to this Office, in line with their Licensing Policy and complies with both Police and Immigration guidelines (as of 2017). Typically, a valid Application consists of a Criminal Record Check, Personal Licence Holders Certificate, Proof of Right to Work in the UK, two Passport Photos (certified) and the correct supporting documentation.

This process varies across the UK and it is essential that the Application is submitted correctly, regularly chased up, and checked once received.
