How to get a SIA Licence

SIA Licences

Who can apply for an SIA licence?

  • You are over 18 years old
  • You hold the valid SIA training qualification
  • You have documents to prove your identity
  • You have the right to work in the uk

1.Pass the course

Depending upon the type of Course, it may take around 6 days to complete. The training course is assessed by multiple choice exams and a practical assessment.

2.Complete the licence application on the SIA website

The cost of starting a licence application is £190. The SIA will get back to you within 25 working days. In rare cases, this can take up to 6 weeks.

3.Complete identity checks

You will need to verify your identity to satisfy parts of your SIA application, namely your photo ID. The easiest way to do this is at the Post Office. You can also have someone with a British passport, who is not related to you, to sign the back of your photo ID.

4.Submit application to the SIA

The SIA will verify your identity and run a background check on your criminal record. If you have lived abroad for 6 months or more, you may be required to provide some supporting evidence.

5.Receive your 3 year licence in the post

You are finally licensed! Your SIA Licence is valid for 3 years.
