Receiving a boating licence in NSW is very similar to getting a driver’s licence. The first step is a quality training course.Courses that are more than one day can be taken when it fits the students’ schedules. Instructors will even take the course to the students and meet a group at an offsite venue.
When the course is complete, a boat licence nsw can be obtained for a fee. Just like a driver’s licence, a person must pay a state government fee to the Roads and Maritime Services in order to receive a boat licence. There are a variety of options including one-, three-, and five-year licences. Young adults, those aged 12 to 16 may also obtain a licence and both adults and young adults can also purchase a separate PWC, or personal watercraft, licence.
Growing demand in the industry

The increased demand in boats translates into an increased demand for boating licences.
For a NSW boating licence there are many boating schools. Booking courses is easy and can be done online at the school’s website or by calling the school phone number.
