How long is a Coast Guard captain's license good for?

All USCG captain licenses are valid for five years, at which point it is necessary to renew your license.

How do you renew your captain’s license?

To renew your OUPV/Master Deck License, you must be able to show 360 days (one year) of sea service during the past five years. This must be verified by completing the Small Vessel Sea Service Form or by providing a letter from a vessel owner or company verifying your sea service. Many boat captains find themselves nearing renewal but are for various reasons unable to meet the Coast Guard's one year service requirement.

An alternative to meeting the one year sea service requirement is to take the Mariners Learning System™ Deck License Renewal Course. Upon completion of the MLS online course, you take our final Proctored Exam after which a Certificate of Completion is issued. The U.S. Coast Guard will accept this certificate in lieu of meeting the time requirement.

If your license has already expired, there is a (1) one year grace period during which you can still renew your license without losing it. However, if you go twelve months and one day, then your license will be gone.
