Do I need a marine licence / apply for a self-service marine licence?

Main content

If you are accessing this tool for the purpose of applying for a self-service marine licence or test self-service suitability, you are encouraged to read the guidance available in the first instance.

When activities are proposed in locations with site sensitive factors it may be necessary for you to engage and agree method statements with relevant bodies in order to proceed (assuming your activity otherwise qualifies as a self-service activity and all other criteria is met). Understanding requirements in advance will mean that you are more likely to be able to achieve a successful outcome and be issued with a self-service marine licence.
