Yes, but the kind of test they come up with, that all parties will agree to, is going to be a joke. Its like the modern day driving test. I just retook the test after, what 10, 15 years? What happened to all the hard questions? What happened to "slower traffic keep right"? Its not even in the book anymore! Even though the hard questions were about silly things like hazard placards, it weeded out all the idiots. Again, natural selection.
The boating test should be very hard, but it won't be. Just more money for the states, more litigation, higher insurance bills, etc.
