Law Enforcement Bulletin | Motorboat Decals

sample of a boat decal

The Department of Motor Vehicles has learned recently that some motorboat registration certificates may have been sent without the required annual validation decals.  The Department is in the process of mailing the decal to the impacted motorboat registrants, but in the interim, you may encounter a properly registered motorboat that is unable to display necessary decals. 

Until such time that the Department can distribute all required decals, the Department asks that you exercise judgement and leniency if you encounter a motorboat being operated without updated validation decals.


If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Enforcement & Safety Office during normal business hours.
