The Pleasure Craft Operator Card is often confused with a boat licence or boating.

How do I get my Canada boating safety license?

You may have heard the term Canada Boat Licence, Canadian Boating License or Boaters Card and that you need one of them or a driver's license to operate your boat in Canada. What is really required is the Pleasure Craft Operator Card (PCOC). Since it is regulated by Transport Canada under the Competency of Operators of Pleasure Craft Regulations, it is valid across Canada, and is the only card that is required to operate a powered pleasure vessel in Canada. You can get the Pleasure Craft Operator Card by taking the Better Boating Safe Boat Training ® online safe boating course today!

 

 

 

 

Crossing the Border

Boating Lincense

A boat license or boating licence are the numbers displayed on the bow of a vessel.

Canada and the United States have similar mandatory boater education requirements and many U.S states will accept the Pleasure Craft Operator Card (PCOC) as proof of competency.  On the Canadian side of the border Canada will accept boating education cards that are issued by a state that meets the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators (NASBLA) requirements as proof of competency.

Our Student Testimonials

You guys have a great program. I just wish all the other boating courses were more like yours then we would not have some of these people out there on the water with limited experience. Incidentally the all-day course I took in Toronto in 2001 was one of the best and is far better than just writing the test and hoping for a pass mark.

Mr. Sackston,
Fenelon Falls, Ontario

Due to my hectic schedule I was unable to attend your one day course located in Toronto.  I was hesitant taking the course online thinking that it would be intimidating and or boring. To my surprise I found the online course to be very entertaining and educating!

Mrs. Breen,
Sarnia Ontario

I had a great time during the one day course; it was very educating and exciting!

Mr. Adams,
Toronto Ontario

I found the Better Boating Safe Boating training course to be very informative and entertaining!

Hi, my name is Ben and I am 15 years old. My birthday is coming up and I got my boaters licence online.

The website you have made is fantastic. I actually use it to study from. It's an excellent source for boating safety, rules and regulations.

The site is great. Keep up the good work!
