Ideal for anyone aged 12 years or older wishing to learn about boating whilst meeting the requirements for obtaining a Victorian Marine (Boat) Licence,  a PWC (Jetski) Endorsement or a Restricted Marine Licence. The licence courses also include sitting the Marine Licence and/or PWC Endorsement tests. No further training or testing is required on successful completion of the course. You will also receive a Certificate of Attainment which must be taken to VicRoads within 12 months of completing the course to obtain the licence. Delivered by qualified Maritime Trainers.

A restricted licence is required by any person over the age of 12, but under the age of 16, who is operating a powered recreational vessel.

Holders of a restricted marine licence may act as a Skipper of a recreational vessel only if:

  • Operating during daylight hours between sunrise and sunset.
  • Operating at speeds of less than 10 knots.
  • Not operating a vessel that is towing a person, another vessel or object.

Once a restricted licence holder turns 16 years old, the restricted marine licence automatically becomes a marine licence.

Enrolment and Booking
NOTE: People aged between 12 and under 16 years old are no longer able to obtain a PWC endorsement on their restricted marine licence. You can read more about this law change on the Maritime Safety Victoria website.
