Scottish Certificate for Personal Licence Holders
Scottish Certificate for Personal Licence Holders (SCPLH)
Scottish Personal Licence Holders have an important job within the licensed trade sector. They authorise the sale of alcohol in both on and off sales businesses while ensuring that each and every sale is legal.
Accompanying this responsibility is a requirement for Personal Licence Holders to complete training and pass the relevant SCPLH exams.
SDConsultancy offers both the SCPLH Full course and the SCPLH Refresher course.

To become a Personal Licence Holder there is a legal requirement to undertake training under the Licensing (Scotland) Act 2005. The Personal Licence Holder completes the required training programme and accompanying exam. Following successful completion of the exam, the Personal Licence Holder is issued with a certificate by an accredited awarding body. This certificate is then submitted to the local licensing board. You will be required to complete the required forms, make a payment and the documentation is assessed. On the successful outcome of your application, you will receive your Personal Licence from the Local Licensing Board.
