State Boating and Boater Education Information
If you were born after April 28, 1954 and do not hold a valid U.S. Coast Guard Motorboat Operator's License, you need an Alabama Boat Operator's License to operate a motorized vessel on Alabama's waterways.
To get your license, you first need to prove your knowledge of boating regulations and safety. You can do this by successfully completing an exam at the Department of Public Safety Driver's License Examining Office. Or, more conveniently, you can get your Alabama Boating License online at BOATERexam.com.
BOATERexam.com is an online boating safety course approved by the Alabama Marine Police division and National Association for Boating Law Administrators (NASBLA).
