PADI Diver Propulsion Vehicle (DPV) Specialty
If scuba diving is like taking a scenic stroll around a park, a Diver Propulsion Vehicle (DPV) is like exploring a neighborhood on an (electric) bicycle. DPVs, also called underwater scooters, allow you to see more, conserve air and get from one place to another faster - with a huge smile on your face.
Scuba diving with a DPV is some of the most fun you can have underwater. During the PADI® Diver Propulsion Vehicle course, you’ll be surprised how much you can see on one tank of air. Your instructor will show you different maneuvers and answer any questions you have.
The Scuba Gear You Use
All the equipment you will need is included in the PADI Diver Propulsion Vehicle Specality Course. You'll use all the basic scuba gear including a mask and snorkel, fins, a wetsuit, a buoyancy compensating jacket (BCD) that carries your weights and scuba tank, a scuba regulator to breathe from and instrumentation to monitor depth and air supply.

PADI eLearning makes it easy to fit scuba lessons into a busy schedule. Learn about scuba diving principles and terminology whenever, wherever it's convenient for you. It's your course on your time.

eLearning time commitment: 3 Hours
To take participate in the PADI Diver Propulsion Vehicle Specality Course you must be at least 12 years old, and a PADI (Junior) Open Water Diver.
Scuba diving requires a minimum level of health and fitness. Chronic health conditions, certain medications and/or recent surgery may require you to get written approval from a physician before diving.
Avoid disappointment, download and review the Diver Medical Form to ensure you won’t need a physician’s approval to dive before enrolling in a scuba course. Instructors, divemasters and dive shop staff are not physicians and should not be asked for medical advice; only medical professionals can give medical clearance to dive.
If you (or your physician) have questions about medical fitness to dive, contact the experts at Divers Alert Network (DAN).
Your Next Adventure
DPVs can come in handy when wreck diving because they let you tour more of the wreck, plus reduce your air consumption. You may want to consider the PADI Wreck Diver course while working your way to PADI Master Scuba Diver. The PADI Enriched Air Diver course allows you to extend your time underwater and dry suit allows you to dive comfortably longer, and to make more dives.
