In Scotland, licensing law and regulation requires personal licence holders to complete refresher training within five years of the issue date of their licence and also to Renew their licence every 10 years.
In order to refresh your personal licence, you must provide evidence of completing your refresher training to your licensing board which issued your personal licence no later than three months after the five year anniversary deadline. This is done by sending your certificate and original personal licence to the board in order for them to update your training record.
In order to renew your personal licence, you must undertake the same refresher qualification as per your five-year requirement and apply to your licensing authority no later than three months before the expiry date of your licence. This is done by sending your refresher certificate, completed application form, original personal licence and a £50.00 fee to the licensing board who originally issued the licence.
The deadline to undertake training and submit your application (and associated documents) to your issuing board for licence holders whose licence was issued in 2009 or previous is Friday 31 May 2019.
The SCPLH-R course is taken as an online module which can be completed in your own time, with the exam taking place at a training venue on a date of your choice.
