Renew a pleasure boat or vessel licence
A pleasure boat or vessel licence lasts for 12 months.
Applicants will be sent a renewal reminder approximately three months before the licence expires. The responsibility for renewal remains with the licence holder and after the initial reminder is issued, no further reminder will be sent.
If a licence lapses the holder cannot operate, navigate or use a vessel until the relevant licence has been issued.
