Boat Training

NSW Boat Licence Options

NSW Maritime requires us all to have a boat licence when driving a powerboat.

There are several ways to gain your boat licence – you can select the approach that best suits your preferred learning style, your experience levels and your desired course format.

Download the paper on the lower right hand side of this page to see the NSW Boat Licence options summarised as well as an overview of the different types of course you can sign up for – from the dodgy ‘discuss’ type of course where all the instructor does is talk about how to drive the boat you are sitting in, though the middle of the road ‘demonstrate’ courses where the instructor shows you how great they are at driving a boat right through to our courses, the ‘do’ course where we get you to do everything – after all we want you to learn how to drive a boat in case you use one of ours!!
