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.

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. It is recommended that you apply as early as possible to ensure your application can be processed in time as it may not be possible to determine applications within the 3 month period if a Board hearing is required.

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