The Vermont Boating Safety Education Certificate (also referred to as the Vermont boating license) is proof that a boater has taken and passed an approved boating safety education course. The Vermont State Police currently have mandatory boater education requiring all boaters born after January 1, 1974 to have the Boater Education Card accepted by the State of Vermont on board when the vessel is underway to satisfy the Vermont boating regulations.

Many boaters who do not fall into this category will still wish to get the Vermont Boating Safety Education Certificate so they can save on their boat insurance.

Where can I take my safe boating exam and get my Boater Education Card?
