Supervising someone without a licence when shooting

If you're planning to go shooting with someone who does not have a firearms licence this summer, it's important you understand your obligations as a licence holder.

In most circumstances, non-prohibited firearms can be used by someone without a firearms licence if they are under the immediate supervision of a licence holder.

Immediate supervision means the licence holder is:

  • physically present and actively supervising the shooter
  • close enough to be able to take control of the firearm being used by the shooter if necessary, and
  • not using another firearm while providing supervision.
