As reported in Cruising Compass

Effective Friday, January 1, Florida boat operators born on or after January 1, 1988 must complete and pass an approved boating safety education course to operate a motorboat of 10 horsepower or more. The new law changes the age threshold for Florida boater education requirements; in 2010 it is to be based on whether or not boaters were born on or after January 1, 1988.

Boaters in this age group must have in their possession photographic identification (i.e. driver's license) and a Boating Safety Education Identification Card issued by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC). The card is valid for life.
