DBS Checks for Personal Licence

There is a legal requirement to obtain a Personal License before you can sell alcohol on your premises


If you work in the hospitality industry, you may already be aware that there is a legal requirement to obtain a Personal License before you can sell alcohol on your premises. This licence will be granted by your local council once you have completed the personal licence course. To apply for a Personal Licence, there are certain requirements: you need to be a UK citizen that has passed the personal licence course, be at least 18 years of age, and get an enhanced DBS check done.

What Information does an Enhanced DBS Check Reveal?

An enhanced DBS check is processed through the Disclosure and Barring Service. It offers the highest level of disclosure for an individual out of any of the DBS checks. Enhanced DBS checks disclose any spent or unspent convictions on a person’s record, as well as cautions, warnings, reprimands and checks against ISA barred lists.
