RYA Interactive CEVNI Test

A valid ICC is often required for cruising Europe’s inland waters. To validate your ICC (International Certificate of Competence) for inland waters you must take the CEVNI test, which checks your knowledge of the rules and signs that skippers of pleasure craft are expected to know and follow.

The RYA online CEVNI test is a short multiple choice online paper that you can take remotely from your own home or indeed from anywhere in the world.

The “RYA European waterways regulations (the CEVNI rules explained)” publication G17 provides the information you need to learn the code in a clear and concise way. A sample paper can be found at the back of the book. You can purchase a copy in our online shop here

Also available are flip cards which is an easy way of learning and revising the shapes, lights and signs that you need to know, they are available here
