Transferring your licence

Apply online

You will have the option to complete a fully interactive PDF form that you can download, complete and submit online. You will also be able to make your payment online if applicable.

Apply to transfer your premises licence

If you are transferring your licence to someone else you will need to give us:

  • a completed application form
  • documents to prove your eligibility to work or remain in the UK
  • a current premises licence or an explanation as to why the current licence cannot be sent
  • fee
  • completed consent form from the current premises holder

Unless you submit your application electronically, you will be required to give notice of this to:

Gloucestershire Constabulary
County Police Headquarters
No. 1 Waterwells
Waterwells Drive



Alcohol Licensing Team
Lunar House
40 Wellesley Road

A new premises licence will be sent to you.

Tacit consent 

Tacit consent applies to this application. This means that you can assume the authorisation has been granted (subject to standard conditions that might apply) if you have not received a decision notice from us within 42 calendar days. 

The timeframe above starts on receipt of an acknowledgement.

The timeframe above takes into consideration the need for a licensing committee hearing. Where a decision is delegated to licensing officers, the timeframe for determining an application is likely to be less.
