There is a multiple-choice assessment within the course. Other than what is stated at the course, no items are allowed to be used during the test. Failure to comply in this regard will result in an immediate failure.
To assist you in passing the test, we provide comprehensive, yet easy to read, pre-course study material upon booking so you can be well prepared. See your confirmation package for the link to your study page.
From time to time people may be required to retest, good advice would be to do a bit more study. After this, if further training and assessment are required, we may give you an invitation to return. A small fee may be applicable.
Once you reserve your seat in any given class, you are securing a space and others may be denied the opportunity to attend. Consequently, we reserve the right to refuse your rescheduling to another class. Boating Licence Course also reserves the right to reschedule any given class due to circumstances beyond our control. If we must reschedule a class, you’ll be given the opportunity to attend any class given by us within 1 year or to a full refund.
Boating Licence Course is proud to deliver high-end, superior safe boating courses. We are not the cheap training company; we will not compromise on quality. Your training & boating safety is paramount. We are not the cheap option & refuse to go that level.
We may be a few dollars more than our competitors but this allows us to strive for:
Practical training tickets
Not all content will be covered at the course as it is designed to supplement your study. Students are advised to do a certain amount of study prior to attending the course. This information will be delivered to you via our enrolment package and will help you achieve the greatest chance of success at getting your licence.
All sales are final. In the event that you cannot attend the course, refunds are not available.
Proof Of Identity Policy
Everyone sitting a course with us MUST bring acceptable Proof Of Identity (POI). This is not negotiable, and you cannot complete the course without it. As an example, a valid NSW Photo Drivers Licence is acceptable for an adult over 16 years, whereas a passport or birth certificate will require further identification to complete the POI check.
POI varies for Young Adults (12 to up to 16 years) and adults (>16 years). Young Adults applicants must have POI (i.e. a birth certificate) and must also have a parent present who must also have acceptable POI.
Click here for the NSW RMS POI brochure. We strongly recommend you read this prior to attending to ensure a smooth course.
The logbook is a simple, self guided checklist that you must complete. It’s sensible to do pre-departure safety checks etc. prior to every trip. For your convenience, a free digital copy of the logbook is available in your pre-course study material. The new logbook is an essential requirement for those who choose to go on & get a NSW boat licence. It’s designed to help you learn how to operate your vessel & learn your waterways.
Applicants With Special Needs
You must be able to communicate orally and in writing in English. If you have difficulties in this regard we recommend that you contact Boating Licence Course or visit your local NSW Maritime office who will arrange an appointment with an interpreter.

We encourage & welcome your feedback and suggestions on our services. We endeavour to respond to your enquiry, comments, complaint, appeals etc. promptly and with courtesy.
