Security licenses fees are too expensive and also last for only 3 years to be renewed. The cost is not justified by the home office whiles there's no adequate plans to extend the duration for these security licenses. Security guards or companies don't benefit from these fees charged by The Security Industry Authority (SIA). Security courses are being offered by security companies or individual's take up the cost by themselves and pay for it. After completing the course you have to apply for these licenses and pay £210.00 each for eg. "Door Supervision and again CCTV Licence" if you require these two in your respective positions. 

SIA offered a discounted amount to apply for two licences simultaneously which is nothing to go by in terms of cost and what they actually offering for services. The duration of the licensing period have been complained several times by so many security companies and security guards across the country however, nothing has been achieve so far. 

UK passport and driver's license cost less than security licenses and also last 10 years. We are asking the secretary of state for the Home office to review this cost and the license duration to reflect what the individual security guards are paying for so that they are not out of pocket when it comes to renewing their licenses to work.
