The Nevada Boater Education Card (also referred to as the Nevada boating license) is proof that a boater has taken and passed an approved boater education course. The Nevada Department of Wildlife currently has a mandatory boater education requirement that requires all boaters born on or after January 1, 1983 who operate a powered watercraft over 15 hp to have the Nevada boating license on board when the vessel is underway to satisfy the Nevada boating regulations.
