Recreational Skippers Ticket RST

(...WA 'Boat Licence')

It's EASY to Get your Skippers Ticket:

EVERY SINGLE DAY (absolutely any day you want)

AT ANY Boat Ramp You want (really ! - all main ramps in WA)

Trainer Comes to you, where and when suits you.

CHEAPER. Guaranteed - you tell us - we do it. Price Match.

Everyone passes - we keep training you till you pass.

Cheaper the more mates or family you add...Book now then add others later and the price goes down, down down.
Course + test
For more experienced people who are comfortable with boats and really just need a quick demo, a quick practice and then the test
Test only
Just like a Car Drivers Licence. You must pass the Theory test to be allowed to do the Practical. Then for the practical you must do all 11 tasks and 60 elements exactly as the Dept require, or you fail. If you fail, you go away and come again after you have done more practice, to try again. Like a car drivers licence. Or do a standard course where the trainer will demonstrate all tasks, let you practice as much as you need and make sure you know enough to pass. Guaranteed and finished on the same day.
Price Match
How much?
Type the $ amount, then tell us some details, so we can check it, and we will match it. Plus we will give you a better more flexible 7 days a week experience.


1) Make a Booking, using our online Book Now feature.

2) Study for the Theory Exam. We will email you all you need to know for the theory examination. You will need to study the Students Workbook and we suggest trying out our online practice quiz.

    You can also try online quizes at Skippers Ticket Quiz and visit Skippers Ticket EDU for more information regarding the theory exam.

3) Do the theory exam with one of our trainers at a location that suit you. 

4) Practical. After you have passed the theory exam, one of our highly experienced trainser will take you out for your practical assesment.

Easy - the trainer will demonstrate each task, then help you to practise. You will get as much practice and assistance as you need - until you are good enough to pass.

Get your Skippers Ticket on the spot and you can immediately go boating.

90 minutes in total for most people. More time if you needed, as long as it takes. We focus on boating, not theory.

Use a Trainers Boat or your Own Boat.  

We do it 7 days a week, so you can avoid the saturday morning madness. Ramps are at their WORST 8am to 10am, so we allow you to start anytime from 6am, till dark, 7 days a week.

CHOOSE ANY OTHER DAY, and ANY TIME, 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. 

YOU ONLY NEED to find 2 HOURS...why not make it early, or late afternoon - ANY weekday, if you want to keep the weekend free.

Any day on the weekend too - just book - you decide, you order and we dispatch a trainer.


We wont waste half your day reading the workbook to you - we know you can read it at home. You can watch our free DVD, you can 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, others do that to make as much $ as fast as possible. Not us.

We wont give up until you have learned to drive the boat, and got your skippers ticket. You will be surprised how easy it is !

We wont have a problem if you want to change the date, or the time, its easy because we have a professional booking system

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 at peak traffic time ?! 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.

The Skippers Ticket Workbook is designed for home study.
The Skippers Ticket is the WA 'Boat Drivers Licence'.

Book an Exam time and date with us, then get the Skippers Ticket Workbook and study it.

It will only take a few hours over a few evenings at home to study the Skippers Ticket Workbook and you should be able to pass the 30 multiple choice questions we will give you in less than 20 minutes. Many couples or families do it together - (discount for 3 or more in a group).

Most people who study the Skippers Ticket Workbook pass on their first try. If you dont pass, we go over the areas you failed in, and give you a second Skippers Ticket exam. Fail that and hope is not lost, many of us havent done an exam for many many years and make simple mistakes. Again we go over and review areas you missed (each exam is different) and let you try again. There are 4 different Skippers Ticket exam booklets, and we will let you do all 5 for no extra cost. FIVE TRIES - at no extra cost !!!!! Other boat schools charge you extra if you fail one exam and they have to give you another. With Perth Boat School, it is one fixed cost, and you WILL get your Skippers Ticket, no matter how long you take, we will ensure you get there in the end.

After you have passed the Skippers Ticket Theory exam, you do the Skippers Ticket Practical Assessment.

The Skippers Ticket Practical Assessment is also covered in the Skippers Ticket Workbook - take a look right at the back. You have to know pg 95 fairly well. But dont worry, we will take you through each of the 11 tasks, one at a time, training you to do it, revising where necessary, then assessing you. You WILL pass your theory exam, evetually, no matter how bad you are, we will train you and work with you till you are at the standard for the Skippers Ticket as set by the Department of Transport.
