Do you need a Boater Card in New York?

As of January 1, 2020, New York will begin a phase-in-by-age law that will require a new age group to become certified each year, requiring all motorized boat and PWC operators to pass a boater safety course and to carry a New York boater card by January 1, 2025. All motorized boat operators born on or after January 1, 1993, will be required to carry the New York boater card by January 1, 2020.
New York State Parks Requirements

You must be at least 10 years old to take this online course.

You do not have to be a resident of New York to take this online course.

You Must Carry the Card

Vessel operators who are required to have the New York Boater Card must carry the card on board the vessel and have it available for inspection by an enforcement officer. Not carrying your New York Boater Card when it is required can result in a fine.
Reciprocity

For visiting boaters, all states, territories, and provinces will recognize boating education cards that meet NASBLA requirements and Canadian Pleasure Craft Operator Cards that meet Transport Canada’s requirements. (This is known as “reciprocity.”)
