Personal licence maintenance

You need to renew your personal functional or management licence every five years. It needs to be done within 30 days of the fifth anniversary of the date the licence was issued. We will write to you to remind you when your deadline is approaching.

Personal licence maintenance checks take around 16 weeks to process, providing full information is submitted.

You need to resubmit your information and pay a renewal fee.

The renewal fees are:

  • Personal functional licence - £145
  • Personal management licence - £370

Please note that maintenance fees are non-refundable.

We don’t send you a new licence, your current licence is still valid after the maintenance check has been made. Use this checklist to make sure you have all the information you need. The checklist is in two parts: one for employers and one for employees.
