Last classes offered before boating law takes effect

Posted: Updated:
TYBEE ISLAND, GA (WTOC) -

For those heading out on the water this summer, make sure you are up to date with the new Georgia boating laws.

The "Kile Glover Boat Education Law" will take effect on July 1. The law requires that anyone born on or after Jan. 1, 1998, operating any motorized vessel on Georgia waters, must complete a DNR approved Boating Education course.

Tybee Light Sale and Power Squadron is offering two of those classes.

The first class is a one-day class for youth and parents and will be held on June 28, from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. at Virginia College. The cost is $15 for youth ages 11-17. Parents can accompany their child for free or either pay $15 to take the test. 

The second class starts on July 8 and will be in session for four Tuesdays. These four classes will be from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at White Bluff Presbyterian Church. The cost is $30 per person and then $15 per person for any additional family. Scholarships are available for youth ages 11-17.
