Personal Licences are granted for a period of 10 years and must be renewed at least 3 months before the expiry date. You must also do refresher training every 5 years from the grant of the licence.
If you hold a Personal Licence which expires on 31 August 2019, we recommend that you do the refresher training as soon as possible and submit the training certificate with the renewal application. However please note that you should not delay your renewal application because you don't have a training certificate.
If your Personal Licence expires on 31 August 2019, you must meet the following deadlines:
- 31 May 2019 – last date for submitting the renewal application.
- 31 August 2019 – last date for doing refresher training.
- 30 November 2019 – last date for submitting evidence of refresher training.
If your renewal application has not been processed by 31 August 2019, even if it was submitted before the deadline, then the Personal Licence will cease to have effect as of 31 August 2019. Due to the large number of licences due for renewal at the same time, please submit your application as soon as possible so that we have enough time to process it.
