Getting your VHF Radio Licence...
Complete the Exam
To get your HF Radio Licence, you must complete an exam. There are two parts to the exam. The first component is a theory test with 50 multiple choice questions. The required mark to pass is 70% (35 questions). The other component is a short and simple practical assessment where you need to demonstrate the basic operation of a Marine Radio, and you will also be assessed on your ability to perform a radio check and how you would call for help.

You can either schedule an exam time with us in Sydney, or you can choose to complete your exam at another centre. If you choose to complete your radio examination with us, then you can book in an exam time using our online calendar.

On sitting and passing the exam, you will be issued with a Long Range Operators Certificate of Proficiency - LROCP (formerly MROVCP) from the Office of Maritime Communications (O.M.C.).

Your certificate does not expire. The certificate fee is $89 (as of January 2018), which is payable directly to the O.M.C. when you sit your exam. The exam fee is not included as part of the course.
