BIIAB Award For Personal Licence Holders

The BIIAB Level 2 Award for Personal Licence Holders qualification, often referred to as the BIIAB APLH or APLH for short is the qualification needed to gain a personal licence under the licensing act 2003. 

As part of the application process for a BIIAB Personal Licence, candidates have to submit a completed application form, disclosure of convictions and civil immigration penalties declaration form, two photographs of you (one must be countersigned as a true likeness), your original licensing qualification, your original Disclosure and Barring Service form and finally a copy of your proof of right to work in the UK document, or share code.

Many of the local authorities have allowed the applications to be submitted via their websites or via email during the CV19 crisis, however it is always worth checking as each authority is different.
