Covering nautical terminology, collision regulations, safety equipment and boating rules, this course option is ideal for anyone wishing to complete the boat licence theory learning and test assessment only. NOTE: You will still need to complete an on-water boat practical in order to meet all the requirements for gaining the licence. The easiest and quickest way to achieve this is by attending the one day boat licence with practical course. You can also opt to complete a boat licence practical only session on another day.
