To obtain the International Boat License (ICC) you must prove your competence at driving a boat. If you have attended a qualifying RYA practical training course you can simply send a copy of your certificate with your ICC application form.

Essentially, the ICC boat license has six categories. When an ICC certificate is issued, only the categories for which competence has been proven will be validated. Categories are as follows:
Power up to 10m ICC
Power over 10m ICC (Or up to 24m/80 Tonnes)
Sail up to 24m ICC
Personal Watercraft (PWC)
