A. All operators of powered watercraft used for recreational purposes within Canada.

Stop by the BoaterEXAM booth and challenge the test!

Simply bring a piece of identification. It’s free to write the test, and will only take you 30 mins. You'll only pay once you pass the test and your card is good for life. The law applies to all operators, regardless of age, so anyone can challenge the test.
