The 4 steps to your NSW Boat Licence

Step 1

Complete the Online Pre-Study. The online pre-study is mandatory before getting out of the water. Fortunately, it can be done from the comfort of your own home. This will help you get familiar with all the safety regulations and navigation marks that you’ll need to know when you’re out on the water. Once you’re on the water, we want you to focus on driving, so it’s critical to know these regulations and marks ahead of time.

Step 2

Attend Your Practical Training Course. Once you’ve completed the online pre-study, it’s time to attend your practical training course. Our experienced instructors will guide you through everything you need to know. This includes how to operate a boat safely and confidently on the water, navigation, safety procedures, and emergency protocols. Our course will provide plenty of opportunities to hone your skills on the water.

Step 3

Receive Your Certificate. At the end of your practical training course, you’ll receive a certificate that shows you have completed the course and are eligible to apply for your NSW boat licence. Make sure you pat yourself on the back! Congratulations, you’re now significantly cooler (and more valuable during holidays…haha!) to your friends and family! We believe that with Boat Wise, you can be confident that you have the skills and knowledge to operate a boat safely on the water.

Step 4

Take Your Certificate to Service NSW. Once you have your certificate, you can take it to Service NSW and pay the required fee to obtain your boat licence. This process is quite straightforward so you can start enjoying your time on the water right away. The four steps are relatively straightforward, so some of you may ask “Why choose Boatwise?”
