Do I need a boating license in Ontario?

Having an Ontario boating license, also known as a Pleasure Craft Operator Card (PCOC), is a mandatory requirement for operating a pleasure craft in Ontario. By obtaining a PCOC, boaters can demonstrate that they have the knowledge and skills necessary to safely operate a vessel.

You can obtain an Ontario boating license in 3 easy steps:

  1. Study our easy-to-follow Ontario boating course. You can study at your own pace – your progress is tracked as you log in and out.
  2. Take the Official Transport Canada boating exam online. No need to worry – the exam is open book and our course includes everything you need to know to pass. Exam retries are free and unlimited.
  3. Print a temporary Pleasure Craft Operator Card (PCOC) at home and go boating straight away. Your permanent PCOC will be mailed to you in Ontario within 48 hours!

Your boating license never expires and is valid to use nationwide. If you lose or damage your card you can order a replacement at any time.

This free practice exam is designed to help test your knowledge or refresh your memory before the final exam.
