Boaters under a certain age may be required to take a Utah boat license safety course in order to legally operate a boat on the state waterways. Be a responsible boat owner by learning the UT boat laws, practicing proper boating etiquette and knowing how to safely operate a boat.
Your Utah boat license or boating safety education certificate serves as proof that you have studied the UT boat laws as part of a U.S. Coast Guard approved boating safety course. While there are federal boating laws and requirements that apply, boat owners are also responsible for complying with all state boating laws. Be sure to monitor state laws on a regular basis for updates or changes.
Before you board your boat for the first time, make sure you have your Utah boat registration and have paid your boat registration fees. Boat registration dollars are important because they help fund the maintenance of waterway resources such as marinas and launch ramps.
Utah has its own set of boating rules to protect the waterways and keep everyone who uses them safe.
