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.

To apply for a permit complete the application form below.

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, annual fees 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.
