As boating activity increases TWRA reminds both old and new owners to
register the vessel before heading out on the water.
Applications for Boat Certificate of Number (boat registration
application) can be obtained from boat dealers, county clerks, and TWRA
offices. If a boat is purchased from an individual other than a dealer,
the County Court Clerk must complete the County Court Clerk’s
Certification on the application.
Boats that have never been registered before must show certification
that their sales tax was paid when purchased. After completing the
application, it should be mailed to the Boating Section of the TWRA in
Boat owners may now renew their boat registrations over the counter with
the new Remote Easy Access License system located at TWRA license agents
and all regional offices.
Boat registration fees are based on the length of the boat. The vessel
may be registered for one, two, or three years. After making application
for registration, you will receive a pocket-sized certificate of numbers
and decals showing the vessel number and expiration date. The
pocket-sized card must be on board any time the vessel is in use. It is
the responsibility of the boat owner to paint on or permanently attach
the registration numbers to the forward half of the boat.
