    to be out on licence

    Does it mean the same as - to be out on parole?

    Thank you!

    I have never heard the expression "to be out on license."

    You can have your (driver's) license taken away, especially when you are on parole.

    I've heared it in a british TV series, perhaps it's a british expression?

    It is a British term. It is a curious anomaly - you are still a prisoner in that you have not yet served out your sentence, but you are permitted to live within the community providing you follow set rules. See here: Early release from prison - serving your sentence in the community
