Coastal licence

The coastal licence allows you to drive a motorboat of more than 6 hp at sea, up to 6 miles from a shelter. This limit is also the limit of the coastal zone for the safety equipment of pleasure boats. This permit allows access to most ports, coasts and islands in mainland France and overseas. However, it does not allow for crossings such as the Channel or Corsica, for which the offshore licence becomes necessary.


The coastal licence is made up of three parts which aim to give you the skills to be the skipper of a motorized pleasure boat:

Acquisition of theoretical knowledge on regulations, the maritime environment and its protection, the markups, the rules of the road between ships, the use of the VHF etc ... This acquisition is validated by an official exam of 30 MCQs with a minimum of 25 correct answers.

Practical training in the general skills of the skipper in the use and testing of the safety equipment, the use of the nautical chart, the practice of use of the VHF and the taking into account of meteorological information. This part of the training is validated by the trainer of the school boat.

After training in the use of the engine and the handling of the boat, you will be trained in the mastery of five fundamental manoeuvres: the use of alignments, docking and undocking, taking the trunk, the anchoring and finally the recovery of a person who has fallen into the water.
