Why do I need to sit the test?

Prior to applying for a Game Licence to hunt game ducks, you need to pass the Waterfowl Identification Test (WIT). The requirement to pass the WIT ensures that only those hunters able to demonstrate adequate waterfowl identification skills are permitted to hunt game ducks in Victoria. This helps reduce the number of protected non-game species shot by mistake.


Test attendance

There is no refund for applicants who do not attend the test they are booked into. The applicant will need to book into another test and pay a new fee to sit the test on another date.

If you are unable to attend the test date you have booked into, you will need to notify the GMA (Contact the GMA) prior to the test date in order to move your test date or obtain a refund.

 

What does the test involve?

The test consists of 22 multiple-choice questions including waterfowl ID clips and the test takes approximately 30 minutes. The test is viewed on a TV Screen and the procedure is explained by an example prior to the actual test. A species of waterfowl is viewed for approximately five seconds and applicants have 20 seconds to select an answer and prepare for the next question.

 

What do I need to bring?

Photo identification (like a driver’s or shooter’s licence) must be presented at the test session. If the applicant doesn’t bring photo identification they can not sit the test.

You need to be at least 10 years old to sit the WIT. Applicant’s under 18 who do not have photo ID need to bring along a copy of a birth certificate or birth extract.

 

When do I get my results?

Test results are sent out in the mail to applicants within 10 working days from the test date. Applicants who pass the test receive a Certificate of Proficiency.

A score of 85% or greater constitutes a pass, provided that the applicant also correctly identifies all the non-game sequences.
