Unfortunately in Australia it varies by state. In NSW you need a licence to travel faster than 10 knots. In QLD you need a licence if the engine is larger than 6 hp (4.5 kw). In VIC a licence is required for any engine size but you can get one with no practical test.


Bloody governments.

I agree Haiqu. But, being, for the moment, domiciled in the US, "Bloody governments" take on a whole new meaning. The Oz administration by comparison, upon reflection, is quite the wonderful, streamlined, well-meaning organization.
Cheers Mate.

What a horrifying thought. Streamlined? They must be pretty bad over there, considering you still have to apply for Australian national registration via snail mail.


At least we only have six states here. And being a top-ender you probably didn't have much to do with any of them.
