At Perth Boat School we pride ourselves on giving our customers the best Recreational Skippers Ticket training experience possible! With decades of boating experience, our instructors will professionally guide you through all aspect of boat training. We treat each customer as an individual and we customise our approach to meet your needs. This is why we are, by far, the most popular and well known Perth skippers ticket provider.
If you have limited or no boating experience, no problem! We are happy to take the time to teach you until you are comfortable and confident at the helm. We don’t make you feel rush or pressured. We work with you until YOU feel happy. Getting your skippers ticket should be enjoyable, regardless of your prior experience
For the more experienced boaters we will recognise your skills and prior experience and give you the smoothest, hassle free and most convenient path to legal certification. If you’ve been working at sea and you’re an old sea salt we won’t waste your time teaching you what you already know. If you are confident and have studied the theory exam we can offer a fast track assessment at a discounted rate.
Need help with the theory? Don’t understand the questions? Keep mixing up your East and West cardinal markers? We can take you through the course workbook right form the start. In response to changes in the RST theory exam, we’ve even pushed to get more practice quizzes online, so our students can gain the confidence they need to pass.
For professional and friendly Recreational Skippers Ticket training, why would you trust anyone else?
How To Get Your Skippers Ticket:
1) Make a Booking, using our online Book Now feature. We send you all the info you need.
2) Study for the Theory Exam at home. You do this by learning the Workbook, then watch our Free revision DVD and practice our online practice quizzes at Skippers Ticket Quiz . Visit the Skippers Ticket EDU site for more information regarding the theory exam.
3) Do the theory exam with one of our trainers at a location that suit you. Pass it and move straight to the Practical.
4) Practical. After you have passed the theory exam, one of our highly experienced trainers will take you out for your practical training and then assessment follows. You can watch the Practical on our Facebook page.
Easy - the trainer will demonstrate everything, then you can practise. Then you do the assessment.
Once you pass - Get your Skippers Ticket on the spot and you can immediately go boating.

CHOOSE ANY DAY, and ANY TIME, best is a time when it is calm and relaxed. After work perhaps, or sunup, or just before sunset when it is calm. We do it 7 days, every day, sunup till dark.
WHAT WE DONT DO
We wont waste half your day reading the workbook to you - we know you can read it at home. You can watch our free Skippers Ticket DVD, and do our online practise questions on our website. When you meet the trainer we will explain anything you dont understand (just ask), but we think you want to get in the boat and spend more time learning boat handling, not sitting in a classroom doing theory.
We wont put you in a boat jam packed full of strangers just to make a quick dollar.
We wont have a problem if you want to change the date or the time. We are happy to do our best to meet our customers needs.
We wont force you to do it at peak traffic time at a ramp on Saturday morning. Only the part time amateurs who have other weekday jobs will try and do this to you. Imagine doing your car drivers licence in peak hour! We will let you do it at your leisure any day and any time you want. Many people do it after work even - no problems in the evenings.
