Personal Licence - for managers of licensed premises
As well as the premises licence, whoever manages and operates a premise which sells alcohol must have a personal licence.
A personal licence authorises the holder to supervise or authorise the sale of alcohol. The premises licence holder and the personal licence holder do not have to be the same person however the premises manager must be notified.
To become a personal licence holder you must pass a course by a trainer approved by the SQA.
Personal licence applications cost £50 and last for 10 years.
How to apply
If someone else is collecting them for you, they must bring something in writing from you stating that you give your permission. This must be signed by you and give the details of the person who is collecting your documents. The signature on the letter will be compared with the signature on the application form. We will not accept an email.
