Personal and Premises licence

Transfer a premises licence or vary a designated premises supervisor

Any person can apply to transfer a Premises Licence into their name as long as:

  • they are over 18
  • they have the right to work in the UK

If you are the holder of a Premises Licence, you can also apply to specify a new individual as the Designated Premises Supervisor.

The Designated Premises Supervisor must hold a personal licence. If there is no designated premises supervisor, then you cannot supply any alcohol.
