General boat driving licences are renewable for 1, 3, 5 or 10 years and can be renewed online. You're also able to update your contact details, if applicable.

Boat driving licences are available as a digital licence. You can view, show, update, and renew your licence, on the Service NSW mobile app. To find out more about digital licences, see Get started with digital licences.
