"https://needalicence.com.au/ was excellent to deal with when getting my boat licence. There online course was easy to follow, understand and in no time at all I was finished. Jim was very helpful and I would recommend them to anyone' - Mitchell Nov 2014.
'After browsing the web and not being able to find a simple and easy way to even book my marine licence test ... I found that it could be partuially done online thru https://needalicence.com.au/. The exam was educational, easy to understand and being able to do it at home and at your own pace was an added bonus. After completing the online component it was as simple as a text message to Jim to arrange a time and a place for the practical which was not as daunting as expected and was a heap of fun. Highly recommended. Sure beats sitting in a classroom for 6-7 hours. Thanks Jim. I'll see you soon for my jetski licence.' Sam, Nov 2014.
