FAQ

Do I need a boaters license in Florida?

Florida law requires anyone born on or after January 1, 1988, who operates a vessel powered by 10 horsepower or more must pass an approved boater safety course and have in his/her possession photographic identification and a boater safety identification card issued by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

Florida does not have a "boating license." The Boating Safety Education Identification Card is proof of successful completion of the educational requirements and is valid for life.

Who is exempt from having to acquire a boater education card?

  • A person licensed by the U.S. Coast Guard as a master of a vessel.
  • A person operating on a private lake or pond.
  • An operator who is accompanied onboard by a person who is least 18 years old and possesses the required Boating Safety Education Identification Card, provided that person is attendant to and responsible for the safe operation of the vessel.
  • An operator who is accompanied onboard by a person who is exempt from the educational requirements, provided that person is attendant to and responsible for the safe operation of the vessel.
  • A nonresident who has in his or her possession proof that he or she has completed a NASBLA-approved boater safety course or equivalency examination from another state.
  • A person is operating a vessel within 90 days after the purchase of that vessel and has available for inspection aboard that vessel a bill of sale.
  • A person operating a vessel within 90 days after completing an approved boating safety course, as required in Chapter 327.395(1), and has a photographic I.D. and a boater education course completion certificate showing proof of having completed the required boating safety education course. The course completion certificate must provide the student's first and last name, date of birth, and the date the course was successfully completed.

I do not have a driver's license. Can I still get the Florida Boating Safety Certificate?

You are not required to have a state driver's license in order to obtain a boater education card.

Is Florida Boating Safety Certificate accepted in other states?

Yes. All states that require boater education certification will recognize the Florida Boat Operator's Certificate, due to a NASBLA-approved course reciprocity for non-residents.

What are the age restrictions to drive a motorboat in Florida?

  • A person must be at least 14 years of age to operate a personal watercraft in Florida.
  • A person must be at least 18 years of age to rent a personal watercraft in Florida.
  • It is unlawful for a person to knowingly allow a person under 14 years of age to operate a personal watercraft.

At what minimum age can a person be certified in Florida?

No age limit as long as they can pass the test.

Do I need a boating safety certificate to rent a boat?

If you were born on or after January 1, 1988, you cannot rent a boat powered by more than 10 horsepower unless you have passed an approved boater safety course and have in your possession photographic identification and a boater safety identification card issued by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

A person must be at least 18 years of age to rent a personal watercraft in Florida.
