Read what people have been saying about O’Brien Licensing and Training Services

“We found the one-day training course for Personal Licence Holders (NCPLH) very comprehensive, well delivered, clear and easy to comprehend. The facilities at Cayley Court were excellent and the lunch provided was very nice. Michael and his staff subsequently helped us obtain our Shop Premises Licence, a service that we found very good and professional as everything was organised for us.”
