Don’t Risk losing your Personal Licence…

If your personal licence was issued on or before 1st September 2009, its important that you take note and act now!

When you were issued with your Personal Licence, you were advised of certain responsibilities, which include completing refresher training every five years and applying to renew your licence every ten years.

All Personal Licences which came into effect on 1st September 2009 will expire on 31st August 2019.

This means that it’s time to complete your refresher training and then submit your renewal application. The window for applying to renew a Scottish Personal Licence has already opened and closes on the 31st May 2019. However, as there will be a huge influx of applications, its better to apply for your training sooner rather than later.

Failure to do so could mean you risk losing your licence! BOOK NOW

Current advice on the Argyll & Bute Website states:-

“A personal licence has a currency of 10 years and must be renewed prior to the 10th anniversary of issue by a licensing board.

In addition, Section 87 of The Licensing (Scotland) Act 2005 requires that prior to the 5th anniversary of issue, and every 5 years thereafter, the licence holder must undergo mandatory refresher training, where a refresher training certificate will be issued on successful completion of the training course. Failure to undergo this training in the appropriate timescale and failure to update the licensing board within 3 months of the training will result in the licence being automatically revoked.

A check of the front of the personal licence will show the expiry date of the licence (e.g. 01/09/2019). Simply count back five years from this date and this is the date when the refresher training must be completed by.”
