OUPV Captain's License - "6-Pack"

The OUPV License (Operator of Uninspected Passenger Vessels) is commonly referred to as a 6-Pack License. That's because with this license you are limited to carrying no more than six passengers for hire on uninspected vessels of not more than 100 gross tons and 65 feet in length.

Upon successful completion of our 56-Hour USCG approved course, you will be issued a certificate that the Coast Guard will accept in lieu of taking the exam at the USCG Regional Exam Center (REC). The certificate is valid for one year at any REC. However, in order to obtain a license you must submit your completed application and sea service to your local REC.
