Alcohol licence ban removed 07/08/2015 A five year ban on holding a personal alcohol licence for people who failed to undertake refresher training has been removed from Scottish law

Alcohol licence ban removed

The Air Weapons and Licensing (Scotland) Act received Royal Assent this week, with the result that a five year ban on holding a personal alcohol licence for people who failed to undertake refresher training has been removed from Scottish law.

Other provisions of the Act, which sets out new rules for a range of topics including air weapons, scrap metal dealers and alcohol, will come into force in due course.

Previously anybody with a personal licence for selling alcohol, who failed to undertake refresher training or present their certificate to the licensing board by the due date, faced a five year ban on applying for a new licence.

From now on, anyone who has had their licence revoked will be eligible to apply to their local licensing board for a new personal licence, provided they meet the other requirements. Personal licence holders are still required to undertake refresher training after five years, and face losing their licence if they fail to do so. If this happens they will no longer have to wait five years to apply for a new licence, but there will be costs involved in applying for a new one.
