Gaining a NSW Boat or PWC Licence
We are passionate about helping fellow boat and personal watercraft (PWC) enthusiasts gain valuable maritime knowledge and their licence in no time at all. That is why we offer one-day courses to teach you everything you need to pass your Boat or PWC licence test and then we help you to apply the knowledge learned on the water so that you can secure your licence quickly and with confidence.
Boat and PWC licence tests in Sydney and around NSW
We help people from across Sydney's boat-loving suburbs and around NSW not only gain their licence but also to feel more prepared for the many situations the sea can throw at you. We offer boat licence courses, PWC licence courses and combined packages if you wish to get your Boat and PWC licence at the same time, all in one-day and including both licence tests and a boat practical. There is also a Restricted Licence available for 12 and under 16 year olds. Even better, if you invite a friend or two along, or your family we'll give you all a discount. Browse our Sydney dates and training locations to find a time and place that suits you.
The speed at which you drive your boat will determine whether you need a licence. If you drive a powered vessel for recreational purposes on NSW waters, at a speed of 10 knots (18.5km/h) or more, you must have a boat driving licence. Ten knots is the speed at which most accelerating boats will start to plane (rise up and skim on top of the water, instead of ploughing through it). You must have a personal watercraft (PWC) driving licence to drive a PWC at any speed.
There are two main learning components you need to complete before you can apply for the licence. Once you have met these requirements, you can apply for a licence.
- Theory knowledge and test.
- Evidence of practical boating experience.
You can select a course from the following training options. Course options One and Two provide you with the fastest way to meet all the learning requirements in just one day. It is fun relaxing training delivered by experienced maritime trainers. Booking on a course is an easy process using our mobile-friendly website and booking system. If you are balancing home and work life commitments you may prefer completing the boat or boat and PWC licence theory only course first and then complete the boat licence practical on a different date.
