Students warned about TV Licensing

Bookmark and Share

by David Allen

By now, there are many A Level students planning to go to university later on in the year, but instead of them planning their studies and leisure time, they are being told to check up on the TV Licensing requirements if they are planning to stay away from home.

Every year students are caught without a TV Licence as most believe that they are covered by their parent’s licence, which is not the case.

Research conducted by the TVL shows that although parents are willing to bail their children out most of the time, when it comes to a £1,000 fine for not having a licence, around half of parents would draw the line at that.

It’s worth checking up if a TV Licence is needed, and if it is then there is no point in not getting one, after all the last thing a first year university student wants is a visit to a court and a £1,000 fine!
