Where to get your jet ski licence in Canberra

There’s no doubt about it – racing across the water on a roaring jet ski is extremely fun. But, if you want to make jet skiing a part of your life, you will need to obtain a recognised licence.

The good news is, there are a number of quality training courses that’ll leave you licenced and ready to ride. We’ll share these in this article.

So, buckle down – or not. Let’s get started!

What makes a reliable jet ski licencing course in Canberra?

Safety first, right? If you’re keen on getting your jet ski licence in the Canberra region, we suggest keeping an eye out for these must-have traits as you decide which training course to complete:

  • Qualified instructors. A set of instructors will take you through the theory aspect of your licencing program. Ideally, the instructor you work with will be fully qualified and have years of experience.
  • Recognised. There’s no point undergoing a jet ski course if you don’t come out the other side with a licence that’s recognised by the ACT government.
  • In-depth safety information. Safety is paramount – especially out on the water. A jet ski is a powerful vehicle so it’s critical you are given in-depth safety information. That way, you’ll know exactly how to respond in an emergency situation.
  • Well priced. If you don’t have to, why pay more for your jet ski licence?
