RSA Melbourne Update

Keeping up-to-date with your RSA in Melbourne

One of the key components in the RSA Course we deliver in Melbourne is ‘refusal of service.’   The two main groups that you cannot serve in the industry are minors and intoxicated patrons.

So how can you tell if the person ordering alcohol from you is of legal age or not?   As per the Liquor Control Reform Act there are only 5 acceptable forms of Identification in Victoria, these are:

  • An Australian driver licence
  • A Victorian learner permit
  • An Australian or international passport
  • A Key pass
  • A Proof of Age card

What happens if the minor shows a fake ID?

If a fake ID is presented or a person is pretending to be someone else of legal age the ID (except for drivers licence) should be confiscated and handed over to the police.   It is important to note that you should not confiscate a person’s driver’s licence even if you believe it to be fake or not belonging to the holder.

All this information is covered in our Responsible Service of Alcohol Certificate (RSA Course).  If you’d like to book any of our courses please click here.

For more information on Acceptable forms of ID you can visit the VCGLR’s website.
