Personal Licence Applications

There are 5 main elements to the Personal Licence Application:

In order to apply for a personal licence you must be able to satisfy the following requirements:


  • You must be aged 18 years or over


You must hold an accredited qualification such as the Award for Personal Licence Holders (or equivalent). Don’t worry of you do not have this as we deliver courses across England and Wales and can usually get you on one near to you within two – three weeks.

  • hold a current (within the last 30 days) DBS check
  • have the right to work in the United Kingdom

Criminal Record Check

You must hold a valid (within the last 30 days) basic criminal disclosure. We can submit the disclosure request on your behalf. All you need to do is supply us with two current documents to prove your identity and current address. These can be:

  • Driving Licence
  • Passport
  • National Identity Card
  • Rental Agreement/Mortgage
  • Current Bank Statement
  • National Entitlement Card

UK right to work

In order to apply for a Personal Licence you must be able to prove that you have the right to work in the UK. The easiest way to prove this is with your passport. If you do not have a passport, let us know and we can discuss alternative ways evidence your right to work.

Two recent photographs

These must be passport size and one must be endorsed as a true likeness by a professional person or a person of good standing in the community. Once you have your photographs, let us know and we will guide you through the endorsement procedure.
