Free class intended to help boaters between the ages of 12 and up to 16 (without a valid drivers license) comply with Oklahoma’s Kyle Williams Boating Safety Education Act.
The Kyle Williams Boating Safety Education Act prohibits kids between the ages of 12 and up to 16 years old, without a valid drivers license, from operating any vessel powered by a motor of more than 10 horsepower or a sailing vessel 16-feet or longer without first completing a state approved Boater Safety Course.
They must have a certificate documenting their completion of the course, and fines for violating this law range from $50 to $500.
As a service to recreational boaters on our lakes, GRDA is offering FREE Boater Safety Courses. All classes run 8 am to 5 pm and are held at the GRDA Ecosystems and Education Center in Langley.
