Boat Licence All day Program

Our comprehensive program is perfect for the person who has little to no boating experience. You get more than a boat licence, you learn how to drive a boat safely. From pre launch checks and boat launching, to on water skill training finishing up with boat retrieval and recovery. By the end of the day, we’ve gone through every thing you need to know.

“More than just a boat licence course, this course is designed to produce safe, capable, confident small boat operators”.

Course includes full theory sessions, NSW boat licence exam and on water practical boat training.

After the course all you need do is present your certificate of competency to NSW maritime, pay for the boat licence and hit the water. No log books; no exams at Maritime.

Boat Licence Home Pre-Study Program

For those who have good nautical knowledge or are diligent home studiers, this course allows you to save money and in-class time.

Simply complete our comprehensive home study questions and scenarios by working through our colour text book, DVD and online study guides. From there join us at Australian Boating College to do our condensed theory session; NSW boat licence exam; and on water practical boat training.

This program is completed in approximately 4 hours with us.
