The Boatsafe Recreation Marine Driver Licence Course includes theory and practical on-water instruction.
This is offered as a one day course, alternatively it can be split over two or more days or adjusted to meet school, government department or business schedules.
Tuition is personally tailored to suit the needs of the client and on successful completion of this course you would be issued with a Statement of Competency. You would need to present this document to a Queensland Transport Customer Service or Q-Gap office for issue of your licence. Country areas may need to see their courthouse or police station.
Pre-course study is not mandatory for attending this course but is available on our website if you click on “Course Study” on the top banner of each website page. This pre-course study comprises of about 40 minutes reading with 15 Questions at the end to test yourself. Answers to the questions are provided to ensure you are on the right track. We encourage you to take some time out prior to attending our course to complete this pre-course study as it will make the written assessment on the day easier for you.
A fee will be charged by Queensland Transport for processing your licence application. Your identification is required to be sighted by us and your Queensland Transport office.
