The North Dakota Boater Education Card (also referred to as the North Dakota boating license) is proof that a boater has taken and passed an approved boater education course. The North Dakota Game & Fish Department currently has mandatory boater education requirement for all persons between the ages of 12 and 15 years of age who wish to operate a powered vessel over 10 hp, including personal watercraft (PWC), unless accompanied by an adult 18 years or older. Many boaters who do not fall into this category will still wish to get the North Dakota boating license so they can save on their boat insurance.
