Whether you are new to boating or have years of experience on the water, it is a good idea to complete a boat safety course in order to earn your Vermont boat license or boating safety card before applying for your Vermont boat registration. Your registration dollars, along with safe use of our state waterways, help to play a role in protecting our natural resources.
Responsible boaters stay up to date with the laws concerning safe vessel operation. Refresh your knowledge on the Vermont boating laws by taking a boating safety class to obtain your boating safety card (often referred to as a Vermont boat license). Your boating safety card serves as proof that you have satisfied the educational for operating a boat on state waters.
Your boat registration serves as documentation to prove that you are the rightful owner of a vessel. There are registration fees that you will need to pay when you register your boat in Vermont; however, these fees are used by the state to help sustain our natural resources and promote responsible boating.
Vermont has its own set of boating rules to protect the waterways and keep everyone who uses them safe.
Learn how to take care of your crew and your boat, while also taking care of our valuable water resources.
Additional resources and information can be found directly on the Vermont Department of Motor Vehicles site.
