It is not a requirement to study before the course. Sea School provides a comprehensive face to face, step by step, presentation for all their boat licence and PWC licence courses.
Roads and Maritime Services provides a Boating handbook to operate a vessel for recreational purposes on NSW waters which is a Learner's guide which includes a list of study questions known as the 'Boating Knowledge Quiz'. To learn about PWC / jet ski operations, we recommend the Roads and Maritime Services Personal Watercraft Handbook.
Every year there are many preventable accidents and incidents which occur on our waterways. Many incidents occur simply because of a lack of understanding of basic marine navigation techniques. This navigation training tool is designed to reinforce the boating knowledge that you already have and hopefully prevent future incidents from occurring.
Roads and Maritime Services requires applicants to complete three training steps in order to receive their boat licence:
You must be able to communicate orally and in writing in English. If you have difficulties in this regard we recommend that you contact 'Interpreter Services' at Roads and Maritime Services (phone 13 22 13) or visit your local Roads and Maritime Services office who will arrange an appointment with an interpreter.
