Public Library will offer boat safety exams … by appointment

LYNCHBURG — The Moore County Public Library (MCPL) announced today that they will offer the TWRA Boating Exam test by appointment beginning on May 18.

Any Tennessee resident born after January 1, 1989 must show a TWRA-issued wallet Boating Safety Education Certificate as proof of successful completion of the TWRA Boating Safety exam to drive a boat on public waters. The certification is not required if there is an adult (18 years old or older) on board to take immediate control of the vessel.  However this adult, if born after January 1, 1989, must have the boating education certification. 

According to the library, the test takes around two hours to complete and appointments will be available on on Monday, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays in either a 10 a.m. or 12 p.m. time slot.

By law, all boating students must pass a proctored exam administered by an approved TWRA representative. Boating study guides are available at MCPL or online by clicking here and go to the Tennessee section.
