Helping You obtain Your New South Wales or Victorian Boat Licence

Helping You Get Your Boat And PWC Licence in NSW or Victoria

To be able to head out on the water and enjoy the salt water splashing through the wind, the motion of the waves beneath you, and a powerful engine at your disposal, you'll need a boat or PWC licence or PWC endorsement.

At National Maritime College, we are passionate about helping fellow boat and jet ski enthusiasts gain valuable maritime knowledge, and their boat licence in no time at all. That's why we offer half-day theory courses and one-day courses to teach you everything you need to pass your boating or PWC licence test and we help you to apply the knowledge learned on the water so that you can secure your licence quickly, and with confidence. Learn more about us.

Boat and PWC licence tests in Sydney, Melbourne and regional areas in between.


The courses go beyond just the State Rules - teaching the "How" and "Why" of boating so that you gain more in-depth knowledge and experience needed to not only get your licence, but also to feel more prepared for the many situations the waterways and 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 with practical or in a short half-day theory course and including both licence tests. There is also a Restricted Licence available for 12 and under 16 year olds.  Browse our Sydney course dates,regional NSW locations and Victorian operating areas to find a time and place that suits you.
