If you wish to go through the European Inland waterways you have to demonstrate that you understand the rules of the road by completing the CEVNI test.

On line test £20.00

The RYA ICC CEVNI test is a short multiple choice paper which can be completed online. It is in two parts:

  • Part 1 – Signs and buoyage
  • Part 2 – Sound signals, lights and shapes

There are seven questions in each part and you must get five out of seven correct in each part to pass the test.

After you have passed the test you can print off a certificate that can be used to apply to have your ICC (International Certificate of Competence) endorsed for Inland Waterways.

Before attempting the exam we recommend that you read the RYA European regulations (G17) book which contains an example of a test paper.

Students have two attempts to pass each part of the test. You can resit, but have to contact us to arrange a repeat test. You will be charged  a further  £15 for this.

Please note students must be 16 or over to take the test.
