Getting a Boating License in Missouri

Steps for Online Missouri Boating Safety Certification

Anyone born after January 1, 1984, who operates a vessel on any Missouri lake needs a Boater Education Card. Fortunately, this process can be completely done online!  You can get your Missouri Boating Safety Certification Card in 3 easy steps: pass the online course, pay and print your temporary card and then your lifetime card will arrive in the mail.  Summerset Boat Lifts wants to make sure you and your boat are safe not only on the dock, but also while on the water!

What to Expect from the Boat Missouri Course

Learning: Step by Step
To help improve your boating skills and prepare you for the final exam, you will need to complete 6 easy-to-understand units that you can complete at your own pace.

  • Unit 1: Before Getting Underway 
  • Unit 2: Getting Out on the Water
  • Unit 3: Navigation and Safe Operation
  • Unit 4: Missouri's Legal Requirements
  • Unit 5: Boating Emergencies 
  • Unit 6: Enjoying Water Sports 

Reinforcement: Unit Quizzes 
At the end of each unit, you will be given the opportunity to demonstrate how well you're understanding the content with a quiz.  You'll need to score 80% or higher on the unit quiz before advancing to the next unit.  If you don't pass a unit quiz, no problem!  You'll just go back and study the unit again until you are able to pass.

Mastery: The Final Exam
After completing all 6 units, you can choose to take a practice exam or move directly on to the final exam.  Both the practice and final exam cover all the course material and will asses your knowledge of boating safely on Missouri waters. You must score 80% or higher on the final exam to pass and you will have only 2 attempts.  If you fail the final attempt, you will be required to go through the entire course again.

Comprehensive Boating Course Content

The course features easy-to-understand boating safety instructions and hundreds of detailed illustrations to help improve your boating skills.  It covers a range of topics, from boat handling to reading the weather, and prepares you for a variety of situations you could find yourself in while on the water.  By learning about responsible boat operation, etiquette and the rules of the water, boaters can keep themselves and their passengers safe. The course also includes context-based videos to enhance your retention and motivation.  You will watch live-action videos of boat and PWC operators preparing for an outing, using good judgement, and reacting to unexpected changes.  Learning in the course is reinforced by the use of interactive animations that help you with understanding traffic laws on the water, dealing with emergencies and more!
