Under the terms of the Licensing (Scotland) Act 2005 there are three forms of identification which licensees and their staff can accept as proving your age. These are:
(i) A Passport
(ii) A European Photocard Driving Licence or
(iii) A PASS accredited proof of age card.
So, if you haven’t got a proof of age card please carry either a Passport or your Driving Licence. However, given the significant difficulties in replacing either of these types of document should they become lost or mislaid we would recommend that you consider obtaining a proof of age card which can be replaced far more easily if it has to be.
Please remember that there is no automatic right of entry to licensed premises nor is there an automatic right to service of alcohol. Entry is always at the discretion of the licensee for whatever reason he or she decides and the licensee is under no obligation to explain the reason.
