Getting your boat licence is a two step process, similar to getting your car drivers licence.
Study the “Victorian Recreational Boating Safety Handbook”, which is available free from any VicRoads Customer Service Centre or from Marine Safety Victoria or download it here.
After you have studied the book you are ready to take test. You must make an appointment. You can do this by- Calling VicRoads on 13 11 71.
