To help support new entrants to the industry, the VCGLR has the following key information and guidelines for new licensees.
The legal drinking age in Victoria is 18 years of age, and it's generally an offence for any person to supply alcohol to a minor. This page contains information on under-18 on licensed premises.
Temporary limited licences are usually sought by persons or organisations holding one-off events, such as a ball or presentation night or a one-off event requiring an extension of trading hours or the size of the licensed premises.
There are clear standards and guidelines for licensees to follow when advertising or promoting liquor sale or events.
Information to vary or transfer your existing liquor licence or permit.
Completing an approved Responsible Service of Alcohol (RSA) program gives participants the skills and knowledge to contribute to a safe and enjoyable environment in licensed premises.
To hold events that are open to minors in licensed premises liquor licensees or permittees must submit either a notification or an application form to the Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation (VCGLR).
