We now offer the Norwegian Boat Drivers Licence in English. Our instructors are professional sailors and RIB skippers. We teach 300 students to Båtførerprøven every year. We offer you the best experience and knowledge in order for you to get as much as possible out of the course and pass the exam.
This is a theory based course and exam which is mandatory if you want to skipper boats up to 15 meters (50 foot) in Norway. After the course you will be ready to take the exam right after the course. It takes 1 hour and you have 50 multiple choice questions.
The curriculum is based around:
• Chart & Navigation
• Safety & seamanship
• Rules of the Road and maritime laws
• Important to know subjects
It is always a benefit to prepare for the course, so we will send out course materials in advance.
It is two intensive days of learning, so we recomend that you make sure you are well rested and motivated for the course. Since there is a lot to cover you will be provided with specific reading and course notes prior to the course. This you must read and work through before you come to the course. You will be tested on this first thing on the course. This way you can spend time during the course learning the important stuff, and get answers to questions you may have, become comfortable with navigation, and gain good understanding of what it takes to be a safe boat driver.
If you fail the exam we will follow you up, and you are free to take part in any of our courses for free until you pass. If you are still not happy with your course, we offer a satisfaction guarantee or money back policy.
We also offer sailing course from beginner to advanced, and the ICC Day Skipper practical exam as an add on the Boat Drivers Licence. Please ask for more information if this is of interest for you.
We abide by the Norwegian authorities regulations with regards to the coronavirus.
If you have booked a course with us, and it is cancelled due to the coronavirus, we will offer you the course as an internet course, and we will try to set up an equivalent course later.
We still take bookings, but it is only binding in so far as we run the course you are booked on. If the course is cancelled, you can choose between our internet course, and/or taking the course at a later date, or your money back.
