Practical Assessment –
Personal WaterCraft Licence

To get a Queensland marine licence, you must:

  • You MUST already have an RMDL Boat Licence to take this course. If you don’t already have a boat licence you should take our Combined Course.

This course covers theory and practical elements including the following units:

  • equipment and preparing a personal watercraft (PWC) for
  • operation
  • legislative requirements
  • maneuvering a personal watercraft.

This course may be completed as a separate course (for existing marine licence holders) or done in conjunction with the recreational boat licence BoatSafe course.

For a typical PWC course it will include:

  • online or face-to-face theory training
    multiple choice theory assessment (45mins to complete)
    100% pass mark
  • practical training driving the PWC (until you are competent
    in all tasks)
  • practical assessment – you must successfully complete all
    tasks to be deemed competent

As we do with the boat training, we encourage you to practice riding a PWC with another licenced skipper or with a BoatSafe Trainer – you may not be competent in riding a PWC in just a few hours.


Some of the activities you should practice for both the PWC and Boat are:

  • man overboard drill
  • safely approach a floating object
  • port and starboard turn on and off the plane
  • figure 8 manoeuvre on and off the plane
  • berthing and unberthing
  • general navigation and control of the ship/PWC
  • operate at 6 knots or less.

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

Please note: we cannot guarantee a pass on the day, 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.

What to bring:

  • Photo I.D.
  • Swimmers and a towel
  • Sunscreen
  • Drinking water
