SCPLH - Level 6 Award Scottish Personal Licence Online


The law states anyone wishing to sell or authorise the sale of alcohol must hold a ‘Personal Licence’ which is issued by their local authority. It is a requirement that anyone requiring this must have gained a Scottish Certificate for Personal Licence Holders qualification (SCPLH) before applying to sell alcohol. Put simply, the candidate must pass the SCPLH course before applying for their Personal Licence.
