Do I need a licence to drive a Jet Ski in the UK?

Whilst at this stage many places in the UK do not require a Jet Ski licence / Powerboat licence, we would always recommend attending some form of RYA Training to build up skill and competence levels. With that said we have noticed an increase in lakes and coastal areas requiring some form of training qualification before allowing you to launch your jet ski. Even though this is the current status in the UK, Jet Ski Laws in foreign countries can be much stricter especially throughout the Mediterranean where a lot of places require either an ICC or RYA Proficiency Certificate. Visit our Jet Ski Resources page for a full list of country regulations.
