SCPLH Personal Licence Holder

The Licensing (Scotland) Act 2005 states that anyone who authorises the sale of alcohol to the public must hold a personal licence.
If you wish to obtain a personal licence you need to apply to your local licensing board who are obligated to ask for a number of things in support of your application; this includes proof that you hold a licensing qualification such as the Scottish Certificate Personal Licence Holder.
The course meets the training specification of the Scottish Government and can be completed in one day.
