Q: Do I need a license to drive watercraft at the lake?
A: Missouri requires a Boater Education Card for boaters, and not a boating license. The regulatory authority for the card is the Missouri State Water Patrol. The card is mandatory for all boat operators (non-residents as well) born after January 1, 1984 to operate on Missouri waters.
If you were born before January 1, 1984 a Boater Education Card is not required. Please follow this link for more details.
