Approved by the Indiana Department of Natural Resources
The Indiana Boater Education Card (also referred to as the Illinois boating license) is proof that a boater has taken and passed an approved boater education course.
All vessel or PWC operators are required to hold a valid driver’s license in order to operate on all Indiana public waters.
All persons who are 15 years of age, or persons 16 years and older who do not have a driver’s license, may only operate a motorboat or PWC once they have successfully completed a Boater Education course that is approved by the Department of Natural Resources. They must then carry onboard an I.D. issued by the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles stating successful course completion, at all times while operating.
