What is NSW Combined Driver Licence & Boat Licence?
The combined licence looks like a NSW Driver Licence, with an indicator on the reverse side of the card that shows the licence holder also has a NSW boat licence. If you have a boat licence and a driver licence, you can apply to combine the two licences onto one card. There is no change to the way each of the licences is obtained or maintained. You can only apply for a combined licence at the time of your driver licence renewal.
