Some FAQs about the NSW boat licence…

  • How Do I Get It?

    It’s quite simple when you do our course. Call us, have a chat & book a time, date & location that suits you. Then, on successful completion of our course, you’ll get a certificate which must be taken, with a logbook, to ServiceNSW whereupon a licence can be issued same day. You’re already qualified so no further testing will be required!

  • Where Can I Use It?

    The licence is valid for use across NSW & ACT waterways. You should check with other states’ relevant authorities prior to travelling to confirm if you can use it legally in that state.

  • Do I Need It?

    A NSW general boat licence will allow you to legally operate a vessel over 10 knots (18.5 km/h) throughout NSW & ACT waterways. This NSW general boat licence allows you to drive any boat, regardless of length, so long as it’s not for business.

    You must carry a NSW boat licence when doing anything for which the licence is required, and produce it for inspection when requested by a relevant authority (NSW Police, RMS etc.). When we make it easy for you to get qualified, why would you risk it?

  • Can I Use It For Business?

    No. It is a recreational licence thus cannot be used for commercial purposes. If you’re using it for work, you need a commercial qualification. We do these. Call us for details.

  • When Can I Do It?

    We conduct licence courses every day across Sydney. Simply give us a call and we’ll more than likely be able to get it done this week.

Have a jet ski too? Those with a boat licence who want the Jet Ski upgrade can get it done at the same time. We make it easy so you can go riding without hassle ASAP! See here for more info.

Big thank you to Sydney Boat Licence for helping myself & my daughter get our licence. She isn’t the best tester (nor am i) but Brian stayed back with her to help her understand it all after everyone left. Thanks again!
