Boaters get more time to re-licence

Boat and mooring licence renewal will be starting late this year as the Department of Marine and Ports has changed its schedule.

The process was previously completed before March 31, this year relicensing will commence on April 1, with licences being valid from June 1 to May 31, 2013.

All private boats and moorings currently licensed will be granted an extension until May 31 this year.

A Transport Ministry spokeswoman said: “The change is being implemented so that the collection of licence fees will be accounted for in the fiscal year they apply, as well as being more in line with boating season and generally streamlining the Department administratively.

“Licences will also have a new look this year with decals being printed as part of the licence paperwork. These can then be peeled off and stuck to the appropriate boat or mooring.”
