Are you eager to set sail on the sparkling waters of New South Wales with finesse and flair?

Whether you’re an old salt or a fresh fish in the boating world, Get My Boat Licence is dedicated to equipping you with practical and comprehensive training in boat licensing. Our courses are thoughtfully designed to give you the skills and confidence you need to navigate the open sea, all while ensuring your experience with us is enjoyable, informative, and hassle-free.

With Get My Boat Licence, you can become a certified captain with ease and without the fuss.

-NSW RMS requires practical, on-water training as a compulsory component for obtaining a boat licence, and our courses are fully compliant with this requirement.

-The duration of our training program is approximately 4 hours for the training seminar and exam, plus approximately 2 hours for the on-water training.

-Our courses include a comprehensive GENERAL BOAT safety training program and exam, which you’ll need to pass to obtain a licence.

-After completing the exam, you’ll receive an application for a licence (completed at the course), which you can then present, along with the licence fee and evidence of the completed Practical component, to a NSW Government Service Centre. This will qualify you for a GENERAL BOAT LICENCE without any further testing.
