Welcome to Inn Confidence! This is our first blog post on the site, where hopefully we can give you a little insight into what we do and the procedures that are involved in acquiring different types of licences.

So, allow us to introduce ourselves! Inn Confidence was first approved to administer BIIAB qualifications in 1996 and has become a major player in this market, boasting many thousands of successful candidates and providing a range of services to a host of major clients.

Inn Confidence is principally involved in delivering personal licence training and exams for the Award for Personal Licence Holders (APLH) which is the ‘accredited’ qualification required of all new applicants for a personal licence, under the Licensing Act 2003.

Qualifying for a personal licence

Are you looking to sell alcohol in your bar, restaurant or local convenience store?

Licensing law in England & Wales states that anyone who authorises the retail sale of alcohol must hold a personal licence. Those who wish to obtain a personal licence need to apply to their local authority. Applicants for a personal licence must first obtain a government approved licensing qualification such as the BIIAB Award for Personal Licence Holders (APLH).

Here at Inn Confidence, we offer BIIAB personal licence online exams. We can assure you that this type of examination is fully accredited, so you can be positive that you are investing your money wisely. Plus, there’s no need to worry about the possibility of failing your exam as we offer free unlimited resits for every customer. Once you have completed the course and passed the exam, you can then apply to your local authority for your personal licence.

If you’re looking to obtain your licence in a hurry, right now you can take the exam from the comfort of your own home. All you need is a laptop or a desktop computer and you’re good to go! This fast-tracked service gives you an instant result and your certificate will be shipped to you at the earliest possible date – no more compromising on sales due to the absence of a personal licence.
