Who needs to apply for a personal licence in Scotland?
All premises that intend to sell alcohol must have a designated premises supervisor (DPS) before a premises licence is granted. Under Scottish licensing laws, a DPS must hold a personal licence to sell alcohol.
This licence demonstrates that an individual can competently oversee the sale of alcohol because they understand their legal obligations and duties towards the wider community.
Managers, assistant managers, supervisors and those who wish to further their career might wish to apply for a personal licence in Scotland.
