Boat Safety Testing

Boat Safety Testing

You need to get a Boat Safety Scheme ( BSS ) certificate before you can register or buy a licence to use the inland waterways, ie: the Norfolk Broads. You don’t need a certificate if you have a privately owned ‘open boat’ with no motor, eg a canoe, paddleboard or rowboat.

Most Navigation Authorities insist upon a BSS Certificate being held. The certificate last for 4 years.

We are a Boat Safety Centre and have a boat safety examiner in house – if you need a new certificate or a renewal, please contact us.
