The recreational boat licence and PWC courses are broken into a theory and practical session, an assessment of your competence will be made through the observation of a number of maneuvers performed on the craft and written multi choice exam. For those who have never been on a PWC the course will cover what you need to know to safely enjoy your craft. 

Boat License Courses are run in conjunction with PWC License Courses. Legislation states that to hold a PWC license you are required to hold a current boat license. You can obtain both licences on the one course, simply select the appropriate registration via the booking page.

For individuals aged between 12 and 16 provisional licenses can be obtained. A parent or guardian will need to be present and on the water with participants for the practical session and once you are licensed, as required by legislation.
