How to get a Personal Licence (APLH)


A personal licence is required by individuals involved in the selling of alcohol. The level 2 award is a legal requirement for personal licence holders in order to sell alcohol. The purpose of the Level 2 award is to ensure that those who deal with alcohol do so responsibly as well as maintain standards that minimise alcohol abuse. 

Penalties for the illegal sale of alcohol

The sale of alcohol without the approved authorisation carries a maximum penalty on conviction of £20,000 and six months imprisonment. So, don’t make the mistake of trying to sell alcohol without a licence to save money, because when you get caught you will find yourself in a lot of trouble.
