Please Note:  Once your application has been submitted for processing, the time in between when it is sent to the NMC and when they issue your license is dependent on how quickly the NMC is processing applications.  If you should need the service, CARS can assist you with verifying the current status of your application.

“The experts walked me through the somewhat complicated application 

process and the CARS organization took it from there. I received notification 

from the USCG National Maritime Center that I was approved in under 3 

weeks from the date the application was submitted. I strongly recommend 

CARS. I'm now preparing for the Master's exam and look forward to working 

with CARS again” .

They always kept me informed on the status. The best service for
