All Sydney courses commence at 9am and finish at approximately 3.30pm. The PWC course takes another hour.
Only the NSW Roads and Maritime Services can issue the actual boat licence, so you will still have to visit their offices or post the form in to get your licence. However, by the end of the course, you will have completed the practical and exam components required for the licence. You will also have a completed application form that you can take straight in.
Yes you can. The PWC course is about an hour long, involves a 15-question test, and has no practical element. Once you’ve passed the general boat licence test, you can then do the PWC course.
There are 50 multiple choice questions in the general boat licence test. The PWC has 15 multiple choice questions.
We hope so! However, the exam is not designed to be easy. If you don’t pass the first time, our qualified trainers will explain any answers you got wrong and you can resit the exam. If you don’t pass the second time, you can resit the test again when the next course is run, at no extra charge. We want to make sure you can get out on the water safely and quickly.
This is a great way to get a head start and find out what kind of questions you’ll be asked. If you’re an experienced boatie, this is a good way to get a refresher of the regulations. Here’s a challenge – try it without reading up first, and see how you go!
If the rain is accompanied by a Category 4 or 5 cyclone, probably. But in our many years of training, we haven’t missed a day yet. Whatever the weather, we’re there. (Even more practical experience for you!)
You must bring proof of identification (POI). There are three types of POI documents: Full, Primary and Secondary. To obtain your licence, you must provide either one full POI document or at least one primary and one secondary POI document. If you are also going for your PWC Licence, you will need two passport photos as well. Otherwise, a hat, sunscreen and water for the practical component on the boat. And that’s it!
