Usually simply called a Personal Licence, personal alcohol licences are legally required for anyone authorising the sale of alcohol in licensed premises.
The personal licence holder can then be nominated as the Designated Premises Supervisor (DPS) on the premises licence.
You must apply for a personal licence through the council local to where you live (not necessarily the same as the council where you work). You must be over 18 and you must have completed a relevant course – such as those detailed below.
