Kansas Boater Education Card
Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take to get my replacement cards?

If your Kansas Boater Education Card has been lost or destroyed, you can easily purchase replacements copies from BOATsmart!. Login to your BOATsmart! Online account to order, or call 1-877-655-7778. Once you’ve placed your order, it takes about 4 weeks for your new cards to arrive in the mail. If you need proof of course completion immediately, you can login to your BOATsmart account to print a temporary card. 

What is the fine for not having a card?

Boaters caught operating without a North Carolina Boater Education Card will face a fine of up to $500.

What are the advantages to having multiple copies?

By purchasing more than one copy of your Kansas Boater Education Card, you can ensure that you always have back-ups available. Keep one in your wallet, one on the boat and one for safe keeping. 

What if I obtained my certificate through another course provider?

Certified operators who obtained their Kansas Boater Education Card through a course provider other than BOATsmart! will need to contact their original course provider for a replacement.
