Q.How long does the membership last?
A. Membership lasts for 12 months from the date you join. We do not supply day membership/licences

Q.Does everyone in the boat need to be a member?
A.The principle of the licence is that the canoe/kayak which a member is paddling is licensed on the water covered in the scheme so long as the member is actually in the canoe/kayak.
The member may take non-members passengers; however the canoe is unlicensed, if the member is not on board. Passengers do not have third party insurance.

Q.Do I still need a licence for a inflatable canoe/kayak?
A.Yes you would still need a licence, if one is needed, in an inflatable canoe or kayak.

  Q.How long will it take for my card to arrive?
A.Your membership card will arrive between 5 to 10 working days.
