OUPV License Practice Tests

Passing your USCG OUPV Captain’s License Exam can be tough.

Even after weeks of study many fail on their first attempt. Sadly, many also fail on their second attempt. This includes people who have been on or around boats their whole life!

And the final thing we learned is that no matter how long you have been a boater and no matter how much you think you know about boating, there is plenty more to be learned to pass the exam!

We have helped over 15,000 students in the last 10 years get their licensing and along the way we discovered a few secrets.

Our expert advice: Avoid days of wasted time and frustration and make sure you are ready before taking the exam!

“How do I know when I’m ready?” you may ask.

In our humble opinion, there is only one way to know and that is by taking OUPV Practice Tests until you pass them all with flying colors.

My conclusion from those experiences is that the general ideas will stay with you for a lifetime but the exam picks out little minor details to ask about and words the questions in sneaky ways about 30% of the time. To pass the exam, you should learn the basics at your leisure and then cram the ‘nitpicking’ stuff for a few days just before the exam.

Taking OUPV Practice Exams quickly show you exactly where your knowledge is lacking and helps you to spot those tricky and sneaky questions instantly.

Much better to discover your weak areas now than in the exam!
