You guys better check in your State for motor sizes.....before you need a boat license....I had a 8hp here as that was legal at that time but I'm sure that, that has been revised down to around ''4'' now days.

Transport, travel and motoringBoating and marineBoat operators, licences and permits
Driving a boat
Before you take control of a motorboat, make sure you have a valid licence or permit and your correct name and address is on the licence. Below is information on how to comply with the law.

Motorboat licences and permits
You must hold a current boat operator’s licence to operate any type of recreational vessel fitted with an engine, regardless of the size of the boat or its engine, or whether the engine is being used at the time.

A licence is not required if you are at least 12 years of age, are under the direct supervision of a person with a boat operator's licence and do not exceed 10 knots.

Children at least 12 years of age but not yet 16 years can apply for a restricted licence, known as a special permit to operate a recreational vessel which allows them to take sole charge of a motor boat (with specific conditions and limitations).

If you are visiting South Australia and have a current interstate boat licence, you may operate a motorboat in South Australia for up to 90 days. After 90 days you need to apply for a South Australian boat operator’s licence.

Producing a licence or permit
If requested by an authorised person, you must present your boat operator’s licence or permit within 48 hours.

Each state might be different?, but i got my licence 4 months ago in Qld.

4hp motor, the boat doesn't need to be registered and no licence needed.
6hp motor you need to register the boat, no licence needed.
above 6hp you need a licence and boat has to be registered.

Someone that doesn't have a licence can drive a boat if a licenced person is able to take over in an emergency, though if you're towing waterskiers the driver must have a licence.

According to Maritime Safety in Qld you must have a licence for any recreational boat over 6HP....check it out on their govt website.

http://www.msq.qld.gov.au/Licensing/Recreational.aspx

Recreational marine driver licence:
In Queensland, a marine licence is required to operate a recreational boat which is powered by a motor greater than 4.5 kW (over 6 HP)
