Practical Assessment –
Recreational Marine Driver Licence

The following video demonstrates some of the practical activities you will be required to undertake during your BoatSafe course.

In Queensland, you must have a recreational marine driver’s licence to drive a recreational boat with a motor greater than 6HP.

Details of the Practical Assessment

The Maritime Safety Queensland Boatsafe Licensing Scheme allows for 2 attempts to attain 100% at the Boatsafe approved multiple choice theory test, and 1 attempt at an unassisted competency-based practical assessment per day.

Practical Training and Assessment must be completed within 3 months of finishing your online theory course.

Please note: You must meet the required standards in order to attain a pass, and in some cases, further training will be required before attempting and/or passing assessments.

Once competent we will issue you with a statement of competency. This must be presented to Transport and Main Roads Queensland (TMR) within 6 months, you then pay their fee to receive your licence.

Please note: The statement of competency is not a licence, it must be taken to TMR within 6 months to gain your licence.

To get a Queensland marine licence, you must:

  • Be at least 16 years old. (you can complete the course at 15 and a half years old)
  • Complete and pass a BoatSafe course or have a recognised and valid interstate or overseas marine licence
