The California Boater Card shows that its holder has successfully taken an approved boating safety course and passed the corresponding exam.
Learn Your Way on Any Device. We offer a user-friendly online course that is fully mobile-friendly from start to finish. This safety course is designed to work on your smartphone, tablet, laptop, or desktop computer.
Learn and test your boating knowledge while navigating the course. Once you successfully complete the material you can take the final exam with multiple attempts to pass the final exam.
We will e-file your completion directly to the Caliornia Department of Boater Water Ways database. It’s as easy as that to receive your permanent California Boater card.
Your card will arrive within 60 days of course completion, but you can print a temporary, 90 days-day card that will be emailed to you within 3–5 days of course completion.
This state approved course allows boaters to study at home at their own pace, and it covers state and federal boating laws, rules of the road, boat handling, required equipment, navigational aids, accident reporting and special topics.
As of the dates shown below, these boaters will be required to carry a boater card issued by DBW.
Took the course online from my phone and desktop. It was so simple! I was able to complete it and get my application with the state completed!
I finished the course in much less time than I thought it would take. I’ve bookmarked your page to share with my friends and family. Keep up the great work!
Awesome course to take for my California Boater Card. I loved the price and it had everything I needed to study.
I would strongly recommend this course for any novice boater! It was detailed and very clear on what an operator should be aware of.
I signed up over phone cause I just wanted to speak with a representative, Fastest experience I’ve ever had.
Thank you for making it fun. I had some questions, and the staff were super helpful and answered all the questions I had.
I found this course online and found it to be very thorough & informative. Now I just need the state to send me my boaters card so I can get out on the water.
The easiest online course I’ve ever taken. Never even had to contact them. They made it FAST & EASY, just as promised.
