Every year, Boat accidents results in death or serious injuries because boat operators ignored simple rules of navigation or lack of preparation.
Be safe on the water! The National Boating Safety School offers the proper course and exam system in order to get your Pleasure Craft Operator Card. The boating license is valid across Canada.
You and your loved ones are always at risk on the water. Since 2009, Transport Canada requires all pleasure craft operators to carry their proof of competency.
If you fail, you can retry the exam as many times as you want at no extra cost. Once you have passed the exam, your pleasure craft operator card is valid for life!
You can print a temporary card right after you complete the online boat test. The official Transport Canada Pleasure Craft Operator Card will be mailed to your home.
