ACT Boating Licence Courses are designed for everyone aged 12 and up. Getting your licence is easy! We deliver courses in Canberra and throughout ACT for you to get your boat licence sooner. A certificate will be issued the same day for you to present (along with the logbook) for the immediate issuing of your boating licence.
Each individual sitting the safe boating course MUST provide acceptable Proof of Identity (POI). This is a government mandated requirement. We recommend you read and understand the NSW Maritime POI brochure prior to arriving at the course.
Students aged 12 to under 16 years must bring their own POI and must be accompanied by a parent who also must have acceptable POI.

Although very rare, there have been students who have failed the test. Those who do fail can re-sit the test. We allow students to do this at the same course for free. If you are unsuccessful after repeated attempts, the trainer may give you an invitation to return at another course. A fee may be applicable in this circumstance.
