Coming January 1st, 2018
Beginning January 1, 2018, the mandatory boating safety education law goes into effect and will be phased in by age. If you operate a motorized vessel on California waterways, you will be required to pass an approved boating safety exam and carry a lifetime California Boater Card. DBW plans to start issuing cards this fall.
Saves lives, lasts a lifetime
The California Boater Card will show that its holder has successfully taken and passed a NASBLA/state-approved boater safety education examination. Courses may be classroom, home study or online. Click below for a current list of approved courses.
