Licence Fees

New Licences

MAST licence fees consist of a number of components.  The fee charged will depend on an applicant’s age, the type of licence applied for e.g. licence only or licence with a PWC endorsement or a PWC endorsement only for those who already hold a valid Motor Boat Licence.

Licence Fee – a variable fee based on the number of days to the common licence expiry date for all licences (currently 30 June 2024).

PWC Endorsement Fee – Licence Fee – a variable fee based on the number of days to a common expiry date for all endorsed licences (currently 30 June 2024).

The calculator below will assist you estimating the fee payable.   Service Tasmania staff will calculate the fee payable on the actual day the Evidence of Identity check is undertaken and your payment is processed.

To calculate the fee payable, simply select licence category to be paid. This can be a licence only, licence with a PWC endorsement (if you have completed the endorsement course at the same time as the licence course) or for those who already hold a licence and have completed the PWC endorsement, select the PWC endorsement.

Enter your date of birth.  For licence applicants under 17 years of age, only the application fee is payable.  For full licence holders a licence fee (and PWC Endorsement fee if applicable) is payable.

Enter the anticipated date of payment and the calculate button – the indicative fee payable will then be displayed.

New licence holders may choose to pay an additional fee of $5.00 for a plastic licence card.
