Correct spelling

licence

Correct spelling, explaination: this word originates in Latin, licentia, which present participle form is licere (to be permitted). Old Anglo-French word licence meant simply liberty and permission. This etymology points to the correct spelling licence and proves that liscence is the wrong one. Note: This spelling only exists in British English (see: license).

Definition of licence:
noun (UK), permission to do something, often obtained official, legal way
I have had my driving licence since I was 18.

Incorrect spelling

liscence

Incorrect spelling, explaination: looking at the origins of the word, it is incorrect to add s to this word. The correct word, according to Latin roots is spelled licence and not liscence.
