CEVNI Test for European Inland Waterways

European Waterways Regulations Book for CEVNI

The CEVNI test is required to be taken by those intending to go boating on the European Inland Waterways.  It can be added to an existing ICC (International Certificate of Competence) or taken and applied for at the same time as an ICC.  The test is usually taken online and this allows you access to practice papers before you have taken the final test. 

Suggested Reading

Please note this is not a course and therefore you are advised to ensure you are familiar with the contents of the RYA Inland Waterway publication G17 before taking the final test. 

The book can be bought as either a paperback or eBook: European Waterways Regulations

There is also a useful shorter handy guide Handy Guide to CENVI


CEVNI stands for Code Européen des Voies de Navigation Intérieure.  It covers signs & buoyage, sounds signals, lights and shapes in use on the European Inland Waterways.
