Boat Testing

All operators (regardless of age) who operate a Personal Water Craft (Seadoo), with a motor under 4m (13 feet), must have proof of competency since September 15, 2002.

All operators born after April 1, 1983 must have proof of competency.

If you were born before April 1, 1983 and operate a pleasure craft fitted with a motor that is 4 m (13 feet) and over in length, you will require proof of operator competency by September 15, 2009.

Testing starts at age 8. Anyone who is 8 or older may write the test and become a licensed boat operator. The license is a permanent boat operator card that never has to be renewed.

Beiseker Registries is an accredited Boat Operator testing center.

We offer testing 6 days a week Monday to Saturday.

We have study manuals for sale at our office.
