Become a State Certified Boat Driver


Taking the Idaho State Boat Driver Licensing Course not only enables you to drive a boat legally in adjacent states, but also teaches you important behaviors and responsibilities when using a boat on lakes and rivers. Upon taking the course, you will learn how to become a safe boat driver and how to prevent your boat from hurting the lake and its boat launches. You will learn, among many other things, that Power-Loading your boat onto your trailer is illegal in Idaho, and that your propeller can disrupt the Lake’s soil when in shallow waters.
