Single machine permits

Single machine permits are not intended for those that are operating a commercial business; for that you will need a full gaming machine technical operating licence.

If you collect gaming machines (fruit machines, slot machines) as a private individual and you want to sell, repair or maintain a single machine or part of a gaming machine, you may be able to apply for a single machine permit instead of a gaming machine technical operating licence. 

The application fee for a single machine permit is £25

When we receive your application, we will carry out checks to ensure that you qualify for a single machine permit.
