Today's topical spelling tip :
" licence " is a noun
" license " is a verb
( in British English, the Americans use " license " for both )
Hard to remember UNLESS you think of " advice " and " advise " , which work exactly the same way but their respective pronunciations give them away.
FYI " practice " and " practise " also work the same way
SO to choose a random example :
Uber have lost their licence
Uber are no longer licensed
Uber were not deemed fit and proper to hold a licence
TfL's licensing decision re Uber was the right one
Uber are appealing against the loss of their licence
We all hope that Uber are not relicensed
Hope that helps !
