Criminal Justice and Licensing (Scotland) Act 2010

Section 196 – False statements in applications: offence

780.This section inserts a new section 134A into the Licensing (Scotland) Act 2005. This provides for a new offence that is committed by any person who makes a false statement on an application made under the 2005 Act. This offence would be committed if a person applied for a second personal licence, which a personal licence holder may wish to have as a backup as their original licence being suspended or revoked for improper conduct, as the personal licence form specifically asks if the applicant already hold a licence. The maximum penalty for committing this offence is a level 3 fine.
