Online boat registration available from NDGF

Boat owners are being urged to renew the registration of their boats for the upcoming summer. The North Dakota Game and Fish Department suggests boaters use the online renewal system to speed the process.

Processing commonly takes 10 to 14 days, according to Randy Meissner, licensing manager for the department.

"For someone who wants to have their boat licensed for 2014 and ready to go by Memorial Day weekend, they might be cutting it a little close if they mail in their renewal,” Meissner said. “By renewing online at the Game and Fish website, it only takes a few days for us to get the new registration card and decals out in the mail.”

The online system is only for the renewal of boat licenses. Transfers of boat ownership must be processed by mail with the application including the sales receipt and other documentation.

Boaters also have the option of a three-year boat licenses beginning this year.  Click the "boating" tab at for information on boat registration.
