Unlicensed family entertainment centre machine permit

These permits last for 10 years and then can be renewed. 

There is no annual fee to be paid. 

You must complete the Unlicensed FEC Machine Permit application form and send this with the relevant payment. Our licensing payments page explains what fees apply and how to pay them.‌

The time taken to process an application depends on each individual application. The time period can range from a minimum of one month up to two months, but this could be longer if appeals are made following a committee hearing.

When an application is submitted, a 28 day statutory consultation period will follow. This allows time for Derbyshire Constabulary to give their response to the application - known as 'representations'. This is done by considering the three licensing objectives.
