Nearly all boats used on our rivers are now required to prove to the local waterways authority that a Boat Safety Examination has been carried out.
This is similar to an MOT for cars, and a Boat Safety Certificate has to have been issued. These certificates are valid for 4 years before they are due to be re-tested.
Boat Safety Examiner
Boat Safety Scheme
The Boat Safety Scheme has a checklist of items which your boat will need to comply with, and if all items pass a Boat Safety Certificate will be issued. This Certificate will need to be forwarded to the local water authority so that a river licence (Toll) can be issued.
In the event of a Boat Safety failure, and remedial works need to be carried out, our Examiner will advise you on the best course of action, your boat will then be re-tested and if all the items comply, a Certificate will be issued.
For further information, or to book a Boat Safety Examination, please give us a call at the office where our friendly team will be happy to help you.
