Club gaming permits and club machine permits

If you have no more than 3 category B4 machines (stake £1, prize £250), you need a club machine permit.

If you have up to 3 category B4 machines, plus equal chance gaming, you need a club gaming permit.

Online licensing forms

If you have a club premises certificate under the Licensing Act 2003, you can apply via a fast-track procedure. This removes the need for us to consult, and limits grounds for refusal.

Permits last 10 years and an annual fee of £50.00 will apply.


We can decide to grant or refuse an application. Before refusing an application, we must hold a hearing.

If you wish to appeal a refusal, you can apply to the Magistrates Court.
