Upon successful completion of the class and exam, you will leave with a temporary boating safety certificate. You will receive your NJSP issued boating safety certificate and your NASBLA card in the mail a few weeks later. (Check the status here) Your temporary certificate is valid for one year.
You will receive two cards in the mail:
The first, is the New Jersey State Police Boating Safety Certificate. This card is REQUIRED to operate a powered vessel in New Jersey
The second is a NASBLA card. Your National Association of State Boating Law Administrators (NASBLA) card, when presented with your NJ Boat Safety Certificate, may be required when operating a vessel outside of New Jersey.
