Upon successful completion of course, students sit for a short oral exam which is also held in Gozo.
Once applicants have completed the Nautical Licence course the Malta Sailing Academy will submit the application to MCAST who will then eventually e-mail the Academy with the exam dates.
The Academy will sms each applicant his exam date and attendence must be confirmed.
It is also very important that applicants take their ID card with them for the course, as well as to the exam.
After successfully passing the exam applicants will receive a letter from MCAST informing them that they can pick up a temporary Nautical Licence paper. For this they will also need their ID card.
With the temporary licence in hand, the document must be taken to Transport Malta, along with two passport sized photos, €23.99 and ID card, for the actual Nautical Licence document.
Transport Malta will then send the Nautical Licence document by post.
Transport Malta requires all boat owners with engine or engines having combined power of more than 30HP to be in possession of the local Nautical Licence. The Licence is also mandatory for Jet Ski owners.
