Official State Boating Safety Certification Exams
The BOATERexam.com online boating course is approved by boating agencies in 40 states
to obtain your official state boating license or boater education card.
A boating license or boater education card is required in most states in order to
operate a motorized vessel. Certain states such as Alabama
and New Jersey, for instance, require everyone to
have a boating license to operate on state waters. Other states have an age requirement
or a "born on" regulation requiring only certain age categories to have a boating
license or boater education card, which is the case in Florida,
North Carolina and Pennsylvania
(to name a few). Finally there are those states who are in the process of phasing-in
mandatory boating safety education and will eventually require all boaters to have
a boating license.
For more information on your state's boating license requirements, to take a state-approved
boating safety course or boating license test, simply select your state from the dropdown
Is it actually a boating license?
This is a question that comes up time and time again. In many states, there is no
such thing as a boat license or boating license, though the term is used incorrectly
by most people. In most cases however the term 'boating license' or 'boat license'
is actually used to describe the state boater education card or boating safety certificate.
Since these cards or certificates do not expire and do not need to be renewed, they
are not technically considered 'licenses'. These are the cards required in order
to operate a boat in your state.

community center. Thanks to BOATERexam.com you can obtain your state boating license
