Tennessee Boater Education Exam

Anyone born after 1/1/1989, must successfully complete the Tennessee Boating Safety In-Person Exam administered by a representative of the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency.  The UTC Testing Center serves as a representative for the TWRA and administers this exam.  This online exam contains 60 questions and takes approximately 45 minutes to complete.

If you were born after 1/1/1989, you cannot register for this online course.  To prepare for your In-Person Exam, you may use the free online Study Guide.

Before taking the In-Person Exam, you must purchase a $10.00 Type 600 boating safety exam permit.  Find more information on requirements and testing locations at the TWRA website.

After passing the state-required In-Person Exam, your TWRA-issued wallet Tennessee Boater Education Certificate will arrive in the mail within 8-10 business days.  Use the receipt from your Type 600 boating safety exam permit to get on the water immediately after passing the In-Person Exam and until your TWRA-issued card arrives.
