Payments for Licence Applications

Please note: We don't accept payments via cheque for Licence applications. Alternatively, you can pay using a Debit/Credit Card online via our website, by telephone or in person at our main offices at Phoenix House in Tiverton. (Direct Debit Mandates do not apply for licencing services).

Please refer to our We've changed the ways you can pay page to find out more about making Council payments.

A Personal Licence allows an individual to be a Designated Premises Supervisor (DPS) at a licensed premise that sells or supplies alcohol.

Applicants must be over 18 years of age and cannot have had a Personal Licence forfeited within the last five years. They must also hold an accredited licensing qualification and must also declare any convictions for any relevant or foreign offence.
