To have a VHF radio on your boat it is a legal requirement for you to have a VHF License to operate it
There are 2 radio licenses:
LROCP. This is a full marine license which includes VHF and radio. 50 multiple choice questions pass mark 70% 35 correct
Mostly for commercial operators. Lots of book reading with this one
SROCP. This is the most common operator gets just a VHF license and is easier.( Not so much study) 25 Questions pass mark 70% or 18
Both licenses are the same price and can be conducted at a boat ramp or you can meet one of our invigilators at a common meeting place. The quiz usually takes about 20 mins.
Marine Radio Examinations are conducted under OMC guidelines . Total Cost $160.
