Boater Education: What You Need To Know

David King Insurance Services LLC serves Coppell, TX area boaters with all their insurance needs. According to Texas law, your teenager can operate a powerboat without supervision only if he or she has passed a boater education course that TPWD accepts. If you are boating with your family, maybe it’s time to get your teenager into boater education. 

What to Know Before You Go

 Your first step is to call the TPWD Law Enforcement division at 512-389-4846 and select option four on the phone menu. You’ll get in touch with a boater education specialist and be able to schedule a class. Fees start at $11 for a basic course. As Texas state law requires all children under 13 to wear a Coast Guard-approved life jacket, your child likely already has one. However, as your child is getting bigger, now is a good time to see if they need to go up a size. A life jacket is something that must always fit perfectly. 

If your teenager asks this, you could explain that the purpose of boater education is so that they can learn how to operate a boat safely. They will also learn boater etiquette. Remind them that they need a license if they want to buy their own boat someday.
