The exam questions are all based on information contained in the handbook. (Note: It is not a requirement to complete a course prior to taking the exam)

Completed my boat licence today with mike i have a lot of respect for this bloke. I am hard of hearing and he didn't mind having to speak a bit louder so i could understand him on the water and he didn't get frustrated with repeating himself. I learnt a lot today and highly recommend licence to boat to anyone looking to get a marine licence. Cheersread more
