Description

All boaters born on or after January 1, 1988 are required to pass an approved boating safety course such as the BoatU.S. Foundation's Free Online Course in order to operate a boat in the state of Florida.

You must PASS all seven lessons in order to receive your certificate of completion.

This course will not entitle anyone under the age of 14 to operate a PWC in the state of Florida.

After passing the BoatU.S. Foundation's Free Online Boating Safety Course, your free, permanent Boater Education ID Card will be automatically mailed to you within 3-4 weeks. If you do not receive your card after 4 weeks, contact the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission at 850-488-5600.
