Personal licence renewals (and new “simplified” renewal application form)


David Clifton summarises the renewal process for those personal licence holders whose Licensing Act 2003 personal licences will expire early this year. Since writing this article, the Government has approved The Licensing Act 2003 (Personal Licences) (Amendment) Regulations 2014 with the consequence that a new “simplified” renewal application form may be used for all such renewals pending the abolition of the requirement for personal licence-holders to renew their licence every 10 years. The application form can be downloaded here.
