Level 2 Award Personal Licence ( Online )

The law requires alcohol sales on licensed premises to be made or authorised by a personal licence holder. Individuals applying for a personal licence must be over 18 years old and hold an accredited licensing qualification such as the HABC Level 2 Award for Personal Licence Holders (QCF).  Your designated Premises Supervisor will also need to be PLH  when applying for a premises licence

We are now offering the ALPH qualification via online learning, which you complete at your own speed at a time to suit you.  When you are ready, you then contact us and come and undertake the formal multiple-choice assessment at one of our venues Ludlow, Telford, Shrewsbury or Hereford. If you have a group of candidates, we can arrange to come to your premises. Please ask for details.

This qualification is accredited and regulated by Ofqual and the Home Office, and has been designed to meet the statutory requirements of the Licensing Act 2003.

The aim of this qualification is to provide individuals with essential knowledge of the legal framework surrounding the sale of alcohol in England and Wales. This includes key information on:

  • the responsibilities of personal licence holders
  • duties of the designated premises supervisor
  • the role of licensing authorities and police powers regarding licensed premises

Achievement of this qualification forms an essential part of the personal licence application and enables those selling or authorising alcohol sales to operate both legally and responsibly.


This qualification is assessed through a 40-question multiple-choice question examination. The duration of the examination is 1 hour.  Successful learners must achieve a score of at least 28 out of 40. You must be over 18 years old and provide photo ID to take the examination.
