Victorian and Peninsula Boat Training Pty. Ltd

Online Marine Boat / Jetski 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

Our home learning consists of approximately  3 hours online learning at your leisure, followed by a online ZOOM testing session. (1.5 hours allowed for this)

IMPORTANT:    The certificate is not digital and therefore CANNOT be emailed to you.  After you have passed the test, your STV Certificate will be mailed to you either by normal or Express post, or you can collect it anytime from the office in Mt Martha. This certificate must be taken to a VicRoads office by yourself and pay either a 1 or 5 year fee to VicRoads. You now have your licence.

What Do I Need?

An electronic device for your learning material and a device such as a Laptop or Computer with a Camera (or an iPad with a mobile) for the testing session.

Identification required

Drivers or L licence is ideal or  100 points –  made up of a Passport OR  Birth Cert  PLUS  Medicare or school ID.

Learning Material

Once you have registered online for a testing session and paid with Credit Card or Paypal, you will IMMEDIATELY get access to the learning material via an email sent to the email address registered.  You are able to access this as often as required leading up to the test session.


Combined Boat / JetSki Licence course $130

Note : Please choose a booking date that will give you ample time to learn the material provided. A day or two is great, but a week can be better.

Once you have finished the test.

Please note that the certificate IS NOT digital and therefore needs to be posted to you. It can be posted normal or Express post, or you or a representative can collect it from the office pickup box located in Mt Martha at any time.  This certificate MUST be taken to VicRoads with the ID supplied at the test session and on your enrolment.

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

What happens on the online testing session:

  • The session will be on your computer, so you need to have access to a laptop/computer with a camera  and have some very basic computer skills OR you can have someone in your house help you get set up etc and get you started at the test.
  • We can assist you in connecting to the ZOOM invitation if required. This is emailed to you before the test.
  • Choose one that is a couple of days, a week or 10 days away —- allowing you sufficient time to do the 3 online learning modules, (videos and handbook and sample practice questions).
  • The session incorporates a quick wrap up of the syllabus and then testing commences through a link provided within Zoom. It is multiple choice and self paced with results provided on completion.
  • If you record a fail you are able to resit the test at the same session, or choose to resit another time. There is no additional cost to re-sit the test.
  • The boat licence test is a 30 question multiple choice test — you need to 26 correct.
  • If you require the PWC endorsement, you then proceed to a 15 question multiple choice test — you need to 13 correct.  You need to be 15+ to sit for the PWC endorsement. Please note at 15 you can sit and pass the test but WILL NOT be endorsed until 16 years of age.
  • Remember  – our STV  certificate  is  NOT YOUR LICENCE  — please take it to VicRoads
