Illinois Boat Registration and Safety Act Amendments Take Effect June 1

Thursday, May 17

Springfield, IL - The Illinois Department of Natural Resources is alerting watercraft owners of changes in the IllinoisBoat Registration and Safety Act that take effect on June 1, 2018.
The changes push back the expiration date of three-year Illinois watercraft registrations from June 30 to Sept. 30. For example, watercraft owners who renew their three-year registrations that are expiring on June 30, 2018 will have new registrations that are valid until Sept. 30, 2021.

All new and transfer renewal watercraft registrations issued on or after June 1, 2018 will have expiration dates of Sept. 30 in the calendar year of expiration.

Another change removes the requirement of a certificate of title for watercraft under 22 feet in length. In addition, the change in law repeals the Water Usage Stamp that has been required for use of nonpowered watercraft in Illinois.
