Get safe and get certified with Missouri's online boating safety course and boat license exam

Prepare for one of the busiest boating weekends of the year with the Missouri boater education course.

DALLAS — With the Fourth of July around the corner, now is the perfect time to complete the Boat Missouri safe boating course and become a safer, more responsible boater. (

At, boaters learn the official boat education content developed for the Missouri State Water Patrol. The online boating course lets students earn their Missouri Boating Safety Certification Card to comply with Missouri law. Anyone born after January 1, 1984, must successfully complete a boating education course to legally operate a vessel or personal watercraft on the Missouri lakes.

Although it's often called a boating license (or jet ski license), the certification card isn't like a driver's license—it's good for life and never has to be renewed. The Boat Missouri course offers the highest quality online experience—less text, plenty of interactive reviews and practice, and on-the-water videos.

The course allows students to move quickly through short segments designed for bite-sized reading and quick comprehension. Learning is reinforced with interactive animations so students feel like they're on the water as they study casting off and docking, rescue techniques, the "Circle of Death," and other boating safety course topics.

Best of all, Boat Ed® includes more than an hour of streaming video with 45 exciting on-the-water action sequences. 

One student wrote: "The videos drove the point home or provided a review. This was way better than sitting in a classroom, and I liked the fact that you could do it in your own time!" 

Getting a boating license online has never been so fun or convenient. The course also includes video interviews with Missouri State Water Patrol officers, who explain state laws and share their experiences patrolling the lakes of Missouri.

Students study the fast-paced boating safety course online when it fits their schedule—setting up a free account and logging in or out as they wish. The online boating test fee includes the boat course, unit quizzes, and two attempts at the online boating license test. No payment is required until students pass the final boating exam.

After passing the Missouri boating exam, students may order the state-required permanent card, and immediately print out a temporary certification card, which serves as a temporary operating permit (or boating license, as it's sometimes called).

The recognized leader in boating safety, Boat Ed is the official and exclusive provider of print and Internet boating safety courses for 49 states, plus the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary. For more information about boater's license or safety certification requirements, visit
