Replacement Ohio Boater Education Card

If your Ohio Boater Education Card is lost or damaged, you can contact the Ohio DNR Watercraft Division to get a replacement card.

Simply call any of the field offices or email with the following information:

  • Your full name as it appears on your Boater Education Card
  • Your date of birth
  • Your address at the time you took the online boating safety course

It will take 10 to 15 working days to receive your new card, depending on when the next batch of cards will be created.

If you need a replacement card immediately, you can contact any of the ODNR Watercraft Division offices during regular work hours. A temporary certificate will be faxed to you to use until the permanent card arrives in the mail.
