  • 2 day course - 16hrs - on the Thames in London

RYA Powerboat level 2 syllabus

To obtain the ICC: The RYA level 2 certificate can be directly converted to an ICC (International Certificate of Competence, min age 16yrs).

See below for ICC eligibility. Can also include CEVNI test for inland waterways.

Please read our terms and conditions when booking a course.

Dates: In the activities schedule on this page.

International Certificate of Competence (ICC) (pleasure craft)

  • This is often thought of as the driving licence for boats.
  • An ICC obtained after one of our RYA Powerboat Level 2 courses will endorse you for powerboats up to 10 metres in length.
  • There is no engine size restriction.
  • The ICC is accepted and required across most of Europe. It is advisable to check with the maritime authorities of individual locations as to the exact requirement.
  • Administration fee of £50 payable to the RYA with your application . Free to RYA members.

ELIGIBILITY

The UK ICC issued by the RYA, is issued on behalf of the UK Government under the authorisation of the UK Maritime and Coastguard (MCA). It is issued in conformity with Resolution No. 40 of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) Working Party on Inland Water Transport.

In accordance with Resolution No. 40, it is only available to a person who fulfils the following eligibility criteria:

  • has reached the age of 16; and
  • is physically and mentally fit to operate a pleasure craft, and in particular, has sufficient powers of vision and hearing.

Evidence of applicant’s identity and eligibility Before issuing, amending or replacing an ICC the RYA must verify the applicant’s identity and their nationality (as the UK ICC issued by the RYA is not available to the nationals of countries that have adopted Resolution No. 40 unless they are resident in the UK).

You must provide copies of official documents which collectively evidence your name, address, date of birth, nationality and that the photograph you have supplied is a true likeness of you. See part 2 of the ICC application form for details of acceptable documents and a list of the countries that have adopted Resolution No. 40.

Please visit the RYA  for the latest information.

A list of eligible nationalities can be found on Part 2 of the ICC application form HERE

The ICC assessment allows the holder to drive powerboats up to 10 metres in length on coastal water. If you want to be able to drive on inland waterways too, see CEVNI test below.

"I have an RYA Powerboat  Level 2 certificate" If you hold an RYA Level 2 National Powerboat Certificate you can apply directly to the RYA for the ICC.

"I don't have an RYA Powerboat Level 2 certificate" To get an ICC: Book an RYA Level 2 powerboat course . The price includes the Level 2 certificate.

On successful completion of the course you will be given your Level 2 certificate and the ICC paperwork (signed by the instructor) that you need to send to the RYA (with an administration fee). Once you make your application to the RYA, you should receive your ICC within 21 days, although there is a 2 day fast-track service also available.

"I'm an experienced powerboat driver - without an RYA Powerboat Level 2 certificate" If you are an experienced powerboat driver you can undergo a one-day assessment of your abilities by arrangement with us. For those that have significant experience in driving boats and a thorough knowledge of navigation, a pass can usually be achieved in one day.

A one day direct assessment for experienced helms can be made on a one-to-one basis for £440 (plus administration fee payable to the RYA for the ICC certificate).

CEVNI (Code Europeen Des Voies De Navigation Interieure) Test

This enables legal navigation of inland waterways in many European countries and tests your knowledge of signs, lights and symbols that are commonly used. Its a 30 question multiple-choice paper with a pass-mark set at a minimum of 22 correct answers. You will need to be well read on the signage before taking the test.

If you are booking a RYA Level 2 Powerboat course and want to take the CEVNI test at the same time, we will make time for it during the course - just let your instructors know at the start of the course.

You will need to know your waterway signs, symbols and lights and we advise that you purchase the RYA CEVNI Handbook (available from RYA website HERE ) to aid with your revision.

As a total beginner, new to the area of sailing anywhere it was certainly a challenge that I didnt believe i could accomplish. Ash was such a confidence boost with an excellent way of teaching in the classroom and practically on the Thames. It's certainly a different view from the river. The best thing is after 2 days, I passed!!! And I still remember the terminology....ebb and flood...concept of mooring etc....Thank you for the experience!

What is the ICC?

It was historically known as the International Certificate of Competence. It’s often required for demonstrating competence when bareboat chartering/renting boats abroad (ie. without a professional skipper/crew). 

How do I get an ICC?

The easiest way to apply for your ICC is to apply online via the RYA website

Do I have to sit any additional tests or assessments to get the ICC?

If you also require the INLAND category to be validated on your ICC (this is required for navigating on inland waterways – rivers, canal systems and lakes – in Europe), you will need to complete a CEVNI theory test.
