Renewing Your Licence
To allow you to continue working legally in the licensed sectors, you should renew your licence before it expires to ensure your new application has been processed before your current licence expires.
You will receive an e-mail notification in advance of the expiry of your licence to work as a Security Guard (Static), Door Supervisor (Licensed Premises). If you do not have your e-mail registered with the PSA, you will receive a text inviting you to provide an e-mail address for your renewal.
To complete your on-line renewal you will need:
- A current credit or debit card.
- Your Eircode.
- Foreign Criminal Record Certificate (if you have spent six months or more in another jurisdiction since your previous application)
If you wish to add a new sector to your current licence, you will need to upload evidence of having completed the required TRAINING.
If you wish to apply for a new sector but are not renewing your current licence it will be treated as a first time application, Applying For A First Licence.
If you have two other sectors on your licence and you renew only one sector, you cannot renew the other sector at a later date. You will need to submit a new application and you will not be able to avail of a discount for the additional sector.
You will not be required to fill out a Garda Vetting Form when renewing your licence, however the PSA randomly select between 15% and 20% of renewals for re-vetting and you may be asked to submit a completed Garda Vetting Form after you have submitted your application and fee and received your licence. If you do get a e-vetting application after receiving your licence, then don’t worry. If you have had no criminal convictions in the past, it just means your name has been selected at random for re-vetting.
For further details on the potential impact that criminal convictions or other issues may have on your eligibility for a PSA licence please refer to the PSA "FIT & PROPER GUIDELINES"
ALL FORMS MUST BE COMPLETED ACCURATELY AND TRUTHFULLY.
FALSE OR MISLEADING INFORMATION ON ANY FORM SUBMITTED MAY HAVE CONSEQUENCES FOR YOUR ELIGIBILITY FOR A LICENCE.
