What are the age requirements for operating a PWC (Personal Watercraft) in Utah?


Persons 12 to 17 years of age may operate a PWC (Jet Ski, Waverunner, Sea Doo, etc.) alone, provided: Under Utah’s boating law, personal watercraft (PWC) operators, between the ages of 12 and 17, are required to complete a boating education course, approved and accepted by the Division, before they can operate a PWC alone. In addition to the education requirement, operators 12-15 years of age must be under direct supervision (within sight at a distance in which visual contact is maintained by the adult responsible for the young boat operator) of a person under 18 years of age. A person less than 18 years of age who has not met the above requirements may not operate a PWC unless accompanied on board by a person at least 18 years of age
