Here is a link to a copy of the current rules (I think they may have been updated since this site published) for the license:
it's basically PB2 plus a medical isn't it?
From the above document, if you want to get an exemption:
Persons holding a current MCA Certificate of Competency for Deck Officers,
RYA Yachtmaster or Coastal Skipper Certificate, MCA Boatmaster's
Certificate or other higher qualifications shall be exempt from all parts of the
examination except that some licensing authorities may wish to examine all
applicants on local knowledge.
Yes to a medical. First aid and sea survival if you are to operate in a cat 4 area. And yes i had all of the above and still had to talk about the local hazards in the solent
Just noticed that the level 2 person does not even have to be the driver/skipper just has to be on board
Also, i have no doubt that the vast majority will be great out there but then it only takes one accident!!
