West Virginia Boating License Online
West Virginia boating safety course consists of 9 chapters.
At the end of each chapter you can complete a 10-question test that covers all the
topics from that Chapter, in preparation for your online boating license test. Since
visual aids are so important for a large number of boaters, ALL of our boating
license test questions contain fully illustrated images that help explain
Once the boating safety course is complete, you must answer a 60-question boat license
test which will contain test questions from all 9 chapters. Topics include:
- Safe boating practices
- Boating safety equipment
- Safe boat operation
- Navigation skills
- Emergency practices
- Boating rules and regulations
- West Virginia boating laws
Test questions are West Virginia DNR-Approved, Too!
Just like the online course, every boating license test question that cover West Virginia
boating laws have been reviewed and approved by the West Virginia DNR. Questions
that cover all other boating safety topics are approved by the National Association
of State Boating Law Administrators (NASBLA). Remember that questions on your boat
license test will closely resemble questions that you encountered in your boat license
Tips on passing the boating safety tests
Review the boating safety study guide! Before attempting to take
a boat license practice test, think back to the study guide. Were there any topics
that were not 100% clear, or that you wanted to explore in more detail? If so, take
a moment and go review that topic.
Take your time! There's no need to rush through a test or quiz.
There is no time limit when you are taking a boating license test, so be sure you read
each question fully, and choose the best answer choice. Trying to rush through the
test will likely cause you to miss important information.
Review your answers! Each test in the boating safety course is
presented one question at a time, but you can use the navigation grid on the right-hand
side to move from one question to the next. Before submitting your test answers,
take a minute to review all the questions. You might find a question or two where
you'll want to rethink your answer choice. Taking the time to review the boat license
test questions can mean the difference between a pass and a fail!
Review previous tests! Before taking the final boat license exam
which encompasses all chapter quizzes, take a minute and review those chapter quizzes.
You might find very similar questions on your final test.
Boating License or Boating Safety Education Certificate...is there a difference?
The boater education card is proof that you have successfully completed a boating safety course. The boater education card does not expire and does not need to be renewed. Therefore, it is NOT a West Virginia Boating License!
