Course Details:

The course normally takes place at the end of a scheduled boat licence course or as a stand-alone course that lasts around one hour. 

Applicants who have already received their boat licence and are requiring their PWC licence are welcome to sit in on the boat licence course as a refresher when it is run in conjunction (free of charge). 

The Jet Ski course consists of a written assessment. Once the Jet Ski (PWC) course and exam have been finalised, you will need to complete a licence application form that we supply to you.  You then need to present the licence form and fee to a Government Service Centre in NSW.  There is no need for additional testing as you are now qualified for a Jet Ski (PWC) Licence.

Exam Details:

  • 15 multiple choice questions.
  • You must get at least 12 correct answers.
  • You may immediately resit the exam if it is failed initially.
  • A consequent failure will require you to take the test again at a future date without charge. If you would like additional training before the exam you may attend a training session for free.
