SECTION 92
Examination of applicants
Navigation (NAV) CHAPTER 37, ARTICLE 6
§ 92. Examination of applicants. It shall be the duty of the
commissioners, before they shall grant a license to any person applying
therefor, to call such applicant before them, within one month
thereafter, and in the presence of one or more pilots licensed for the
waters regarding which such applicant seeks to be examined, who shall be
notified to attend, examine such applicant or cause him to be examined,
with relation to his qualifications for the office of pilot. In case of
the nonattendance of any licensed pilot so notified, the examination may
be conducted in his absence. Each applicant shall be examined in
particular touching his knowledge of the tides, soundings, bearings and
distances of the several shoals, rocks, bars and points of land and
night lights in the navigation for which he applies for a license to act
as a pilot, and also touching any other matter relating thereto which
the commissioners may deem proper. If upon the examination the person
so applying shall be found to be of good moral character and temperate
habits, and possessed of sufficient ability, skill and experience, the
commissioners may grant him a license.
