Now I have to take a Captain's license course (I originally took one from Sea School) or go to a Coast guard testing center and take the test. I don't want to pay for or sit through a 50hr course......has anyone just gone to a CG testing center and taken the OUPV test? Was it difficult? What did you use to study?
This may be a naive question, but if you already have the license shouldn't you know everything that might be on the test?
