Renewing Your Personal Licence

If you are the holder of a personal licence issued by the West Lothian Licensing Board you should apply to this Board to renew the licence. If you live in West Lothian but your licence was issued by another Licensing Board you must make a renewal application to the Board which issued your licence.

The Licensing Team is able to provide general guidance on the scheme but cannot assist you to complete your application form or provide legal advice on whether a licence is required. Applicants should consult the alcohol licensing webpages for general guidance before making any application.

When do I need to apply to renew my personal licence?

You must make an application to renew your licence in the 9 month period (the renewal period) starting a year before your licence expires and ending 3 months before the expiry date. However, if the Board is satisfied that, for a reason relating to coronavirus, you have been unable to apply within the period mentioned above, the Board has the power to accept an application up until the day before the expiry date of the licence. It is recommended that you apply as early as possible to ensure your application can be processed in time and if you are seeking to apply late due to coronavirus you must include with the application the reasons why the pandemic prevented you applying within the renewal period.

Please contact the Licensing Board if you are unsure of the dates in relation to your current licence.
