You will require this permit if you operate a restaurant, club or party bus and you intend to allow customers to consume their own alcohol on the premises.
Unlike a liquor licence, a BYO permit does not allow you to supply alcohol to your customers. If you supply your customers with alcohol, you will need a liquor licence.
A BYO permit is only available to restaurants, clubs and party buses. Any bus that is operated or hired out commercially, and is pre-booked for passengers is classified as a party bus.
Supplying alcohol (including BYO service) is prohibited on ANZAC day between the hours of 3am and 12noon.
To apply, complete the BYO Permit application form.
Other forms and related documents are available on the Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation website.
Please consult the responsible agency for more information and to ascertain the level of compliance (if any) that may be required.
