SIA licensing FAQ

1. What is the SIA?

The Security Industry Authority (SIA), which was created under the Private Security Industry Act 2001, is an independent organization responsible for effectively regulating the private security industry across the United Kingdom in order to reduce criminality, raise standards and recognize quality service.

The SIA license was created to regulate the security industry and improve its image. It covers physical, manned security roles as well as CCTV surveillance. Licensing ensures that private security operatives are properly trained and qualified to do their jobs.

2. Who needs SIA licence?

Since The Security Industry Act 2001, it is compulsory for all those who work in the security industry to undergo SIA Training and possess a current, valid SIA license. You will also need a First Aid qualification.

Some of the popular security jobs you’ll need an SIA license to work in:

TMS Training, with our experienced SIA training specialists for years, will provide you with the best SIA license training courses in many locations across the UK and help prepare for your SIA license exams.

3. Why you need an SIA licence?

An SIA licence allows the licence holder to legally practice in the industry. Working without a valid SIA Licence is a criminal offence, which means you could be fined and even put in prison. Upon summary conviction at a Magistrate’s Court, Sheriff Court or District Court, a maximum penalty of six months imprisonment and/or a fine of up to £5,000.

4. How long does it take to process an SIA licence application?

The SIA says they aim to process a minimum of 80% of all correctly completed applications within 25 working days, but it normally takes around six weeks for each SIA licence application to be processed. This time starts from when a correctly completed SIA licence application form is received (when SIA receives a correctly completed application, they will write to the candidate in order to confirm).

5. What is SIA licence cost?

The SIA licence cost is £190. This would be paid to the Post office when you have opened your SIA account and started your application.

The SIA license fee must be fully paid at the time you submit your application and will not be refunded to you even if your application is eventually denied.

In some rare situations, some employers will cover the cost of your SIA licence application.

6. How to get SIA licence form?

Once you finish your training course and got your qualifications, you’ll be ready to apply for your SIA license.

You will have to open an SIA account to start the process of an SIA license.

Don’t forget, you’ll need to renew your licence before your old one runs out, or you may have to take the relevant course again.
