This test is required to enable the 'inland' option on an ICC, allowing you to navigate through the inland waterways.

CEVNI stands for Code Européen des Voies de Navigation Intérieure. It is the code governing navigation on the interconnected European inland waterways.
Signs, rules and procedures for navigating the European inland waterways are all included within the CEVNI code, and pleasure craft are expected to know and follow the code.Knowing and abiding by the regulations is the best way to protect yourself and your boat.

The test is split into two parts and you have a chance to practice as much as you like before you take the real test. If you need help studying before your test either contact us for help, or take a look at our recommended reading.

If you don't already hold an ICC, you should send the certificate with your ICC application form and other associated paperwork.
