Who needs a license to drive a boat?

All operators of motorized boats in Canada are required to obtain and carry a Pleasure Craft Operator Card regardless of age, length of boat or engine horsepower. There’s a $250 fine for boating without it.

“Great Course!”

“A lot of great information and visuals in this course. I especially enjoyed the videos, those poor crash test dummies! I also appreciated the extra pdf downloads, such as the pre-season checklist and trip plan. Well done!“
