Boat Safety Course
Boat Virginia safety course is a free course with all materials provided by the VA DGIF. As of July 1, 2007 operators are required to take a safe boating course. This includes all motorboats and sailboats with a motor of 10 hp or greater and personal watercraft (i.e. Jet Ski). Boating safety knowledge gained through the successful completion of a boating course, provides the recreational boater with an excellent tool to help manage the risk involved in boating.
