Every Scottish personal licence holder has a duty to undertake refresher training. At five years from the date of issue, the personal licence holder is obliged to undertake a refresher SCPLH. From this five-year point, the licence holder has up to three months in which to provide evidence (by means of certification) to the licensing board of completion.
The Licensing (Scotland) Act 2005 specifies that in Scotland, the holder of a personal licence must undergo refresher training within 5 years of the date of issue of their personal licence to ensure their licence remains valid; and every personal licence holder will be required to produce a certificate to the licensing board that originally issued their personal licence as evidence that they have passed the Scottish Certificate for Personal Licence Holders (Refresher) (SCPLHR).
If personal licence holders do not submit evidence of passing the SCPLH(R) to their licensing board before the deadline, their personal licences will be revoked.
By law the training must last 3 hours and will be followed by a formal examination with 40 questions and a minimum pass requirement of 28 out of 40.
The SCPLHR course covers selected parts of the full SCPLH syllabus which include the following:
