Tennessee Certificate of Number

An application for the Certificate of Number is obtained after paying sales tax to the dealer or county clerk’s office. The application then is mailed to the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA) or dropped off at the Nashville TWRA sales office.

The Certificate of Number (pocket-sized registration card) must be carried on board and available for inspection by an enforcement officer whenever the vessel is operated.
