The Kentucky Boater Education Card (also referred to as the Kentucky boating license) is proof that a boater has taken and passed an approved boater education course. The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife currently has a mandatory boater education requirement for all persons between the ages 12 and 17 years who wish to operate a powered vessel over 10 hp (including PWCs) on Kentucky waters. Many boaters who do not fall into this category will still wish to get the Kentucky Boater Education Card so they can save on their boat insurance.
