The Scottish Government has just recently issued its guidance for Personal License Holders due to renew their existing 10 year Personal License in 2019.

If your personal license was issued on or before 1 September 2009, this applies to you and you need to act now!

As there are very few training providers in Argyll & Bute, training courses are likely to be at a premium. The required training to reapply for your new 10 year Personal License is the completion of a 3 hour Refresher training course and successful pass of the subsequent exam.

NorthStar Consultancy is advertising monthly bookable workshops and exams at The Rockfield Centre, Oban.

Refresher Personal License workshop & exam (4 hours)
£80 per person
New Personal License Holder workshop & exam (8 hours) £150 per person


Further Courses will be available subject to demand and by special request. If you want to enquire about arranging a course at your place of work or in your village/area, please get in touch by email
