Personal Licence renewals
- If your licence was issued on or before 1 September 2009, you need to renew it. The deadline for renewals is 31 May 2019
- If you miss the deadline and your licence expires you could lose the right to sell alcohol on your premises
If you hold a Personal Licence which expires on 31 August 2019, we recommend that you do the refresher training and submit the training certificate with the renewal application. You should not delay your renewal application because you have not taken any action to book onto a refresher training course or do not yet have the refresher training certificate. We suggest that you use your existing training qualification, which are accredited for renewal purposes as evidence of your licensing qualification. Read more on the Scottish Government website. Submit this existing training qualification along with your application form and renewal fee without delay to meet the 31 May deadline. Evidence of your refresher training certificate would need to be submitted as soon as possible after you have submitted your application.
If your personal licence was issued on or before 1 September 2009 this applies to you and you must:
- Undergo refresher training every 5 years to refresh their knowledge of the licensing regime, and send the training certificate to your local Licensing Board Office
- Apply to renew a personal licence every ten years, and lodge the renewal application no later than 3 months before expiry date of the licence.
