DBS Checks for Personal Licence

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 a basic DBS check done.

Why is a DBS check required for a Personal Licence application?

As part of your Personal Licence application, a basic DBS check is required as it is evidence of your ability to maintain a safe environment for your customers, employees and colleagues.

DBS Checks for Personal Licence

What information does a basic DBS check reveal?

A basic DBS check is processed through the Disclosure and Barring Service. It offers the lowest level of disclosure for an individual out of any of the DBS checks. Basic DBS checks only show any unspent convictions on a person’s record.

Enhanced DBS checks and Standard DBS checks offer a greater level of detail but are not necessary for a Personal Licence application.
