On application obtain perhaps licence to kill (4,3)


I believe the answer is:

I believe this clue is a double definition.

'on application obtain perhaps licence' is the first definition.
(as in taking out a licence)

'kill' is the second definition.
(I've seen this before)

'to' is the link.

(Other definitions for take out that I've seen before include "As gangster, kill", "Extract; kill", "kebab, perhaps", "Kill (colloq.)", "Remove; escort".)

I've seen this clue in The Times.
