Victorian and Peninsula Boat Training Pty. Ltd

Online Marine Licence Course

How our Online Marine licence Course Works

There are two parts:-

  1. Videos / Presentation / Practice questions – for you to do at home on your computer.

  2. Online Test session on ZOOM at home on your Computer / Laptop / iPad

You need to book into your online test session date first – book your test session time to get access to the videos etc

1. Select a license “test” date and time. (down the bottom of this page)

This is the  1  1/2 hour session that provides a final recap and then testing.  It is conducted through Zoom. You choose an online licence test date in advance, a couple of days or a week or so away to give you time to spend 2-3 hours going through the online videos, presentations and practice tests whenever you like at home.

2. Book and pay by card or Paypal

To secure that date & time, you should BOOK & PAY.  Once you have paid online, you will receive an email with a link and password to your home learning; videos, presentations and practice questions.

3. Do the Online Learning 

This is the easy part.  At your leisure at home, go through the videos and presentations, which make learning all the rules and regulations so, so easy.

Test your knowledge at home by trying some practice test questions etc, All of this takes about 2-3 hrs of your time at your leisure.

4. Join the ZOOM test on the test date you have booked in for.

The day of  your booked licence test date, you will receive;

  • a text reminder,
  • an email with the ZOOM invitation link and the reminder asking you to download the FREE  “WHATSAPP” app on your mobile phone. Make sure notifications are ‘on’ for this app.
  • a mobile call on “WHATSAPP” in the hour before the start of the session to look at your  IDENTIFICATION that you provided on your enrolment form, and have a chat to you to make sure you are ready to go.

5. Getting your Certificate

Your certificate is NOT digital and therefore needs to be posted to you. We will post normal or Express post, or you or a representative can collect it from the office located in Mt Martha. 

Knowing this please take into account postage delivery time in regards to when you need to obtain your certificate.

Online Marine Boat &/or PWC JetSki Licence

Our home learning consists of approximately  2.5 hours online learning at your leisure, followed by a one and a half hour online ZOOM session including the test.

After you have passed the test, your TSV Certificate will be mailed to you either by normal or Express post, or you can collect it from the office. This certificate must be taken to a VicRoads office by yourself and pay your 5 year fee (about $200 for adults and $89 for young ones)  and you now have a Marine licence.
