Best practice for licensed premises and minors

A minor is a person aged under the age 18 years. The Victorian Liquor Control Reform Act proscribes situations where minors may be on licensed premises.

Minors are allowed to be on licensed premises when they are:
• with a responsible adult
• having a meal
• employed on the premises in duties other than the supply of liquor, unless they are engaged in a training program approved by the VCGLR and subject to any conditions.

Minors cannot
• drink alcohol under any circumstances
• be on a gaming floor

The VCGLR recommend a check of ID of anyone who looks under 25 as best practice and optional signage is available
