Australian Radio Licence from Overseas

Hi all,

I'm an Australian currently overseas in the process of buying a yacht to sail back to Australia. I'll do the Australian registration, but in order to obtain an MMSI and technically use the SSB I'll need a radio licence which I don't have. I'm also keen to install an AIS transponder...

Is there a way around this? My reading on the AMSA site says that a written test must be taken under supervision. Does anyone know if there is a way to complete this overseas or another way to get a mmsi number?

Appreciate the advice.
