Inland sport boat licence

On Lake Garda you can hire and pilot a boat without a boat licence up to a maximum of 40 hp and a length of 24 metres. For all bigger boats an Inland sports boat licence is required.


When driving under the flag of another country, the rules and regulations of this country are automatically applied, meaning that the Inland sport boat licence might already be required when piloting a boat with less then 40 hp!
