Whilst the International Certificate of Competence is not legally required for pleasure craft in this country, you may be asked to produce an ICC if you sail in foreign waters. If venturing onto inland European waterways, you will also need a CEVNI endorsement to your ICC certificate. This short test is also available online with us.
You can apply directly to the RYA for an ICC if you have one of the following minimum qualifications:
♦ Day Skipper practical course completion certificate
♦ Power Boat level 2 certificate.
If you do not have these qualifications but are an experienced skipper and over 16, you can take a practical test on your own boat with us (Motor vessels up to 10m, motor up to 24m and Sailing vessels).
