How to Obtain a Boat License in Melbourne and Sydney?
Getting a boat license is simple if you take the time to learn the boating safety course. Once you have completed a boating safety course, you will then be eligible to take the Victorian Maritime License Test. After that, you can immediately start boating with Pleasure Cruising Club, Williamstown. Instead of a boat rental or boat hire arrangement, being fully licensed lets you experience true boating with luxury sports cruisers. And that’s not driving boats at speeds less than 10 knots!
Remember that you require a license for both general boating and personal water crafts (PWC) which include jet skis. It is illegal to operate a PWC with ONLY a general boat license as there are different rules and regulations for the two.
Applicants wishing to upgrade their existing general boating license to a PWC license are not required to provide evidence of practical experience and need only to comply with PWC boating safety course and license test requirements.
HOWEVER, IT WILL BE COMPULSORY TO PROVIDE EVIDENCE OF PRACTICAL BOATING EXPERIENCE BEFORE YOUR LICENSE TEST(S) CAN BE ATTEMPTED FIRST-TIME APPLICANTS OR NON-LICENSE HOLDERS.
The boat license test is simple if you take the time to learn the rules.
Of course, you can complete the boating safety course! What to expect?
Anyone can try answering the test questions provided in the NSW Maritime online quiz. Keep in mind that entering an incorrect answer leads you back to the start. Another thing is that the set of questions don’t change over time. So, don’t expect something new every time you log in to the quiz online.
Isn’t it a good way to learn?!
The quiz is formatted the same way as the real test. It has forty questions with the first fifteen questions that must be answered correctly. You gotta be prepared! For the next twenty-five, you are allowed to commit only five mistakes.
A need for PWC license requires you to complete an additional set of fifteen questions (minimum of twelve to be answered correctly). You must pass the general boat license test before you get to the questions in the real test.
We believe you can do it!
