Tips for Taking the Boat Licence Knowledge Test
You can read through the Boating Handbook in preparation, for the boat licencing course in Bega Valley. There is a fair bit to remember as you complete two multi-choice assessments (1) 24/30 and (2) 20/20, yes, that’s right, you must get 100% in the second part of the assessment.
However, we give you all you need on the day, so don’t sweat it if you can’t study prior to our course.
You can see it’s worthwhile spending time with us and giving yourself the best chance to nail this on the first go.
If you are having a bad day you can sit the test straight away. We are there to support you. It’s a boating assessment, not grammar and spelling or neat writing – as trainers, it is up to us to ensure you are proficient on the water, not good at English!
We can help you with each question, reading through it with you, if you’d like. Full support is available, just chat with us about how we can help.
We provide memory aids, and details as to why procedures are carried out a certain way – this helps you to remember and answer the questions.
