RYA powerboat courses are aimed at drivers of small powered craft, such as sports boats and RIBs, that don’t generally undertake long or offshore passages.
The RYA Powerboat level 2 qualifies you to legally drive a powerboat of up to 10 metres length overall (LOA) in Spain as well as to dive a personal watercraft (PWC/jetski), either rented or privately-owned. In Spain, this qualification isn’t recognised for all nationalities and all boat flags; you should read the “Recognation” section carefully if you’re thinking of purchasing a gift certificate for this course.
The RYA Powerboat level 2 is a two-day, entry level course that will give you the background knowledge and boat handling skills you need to safely drive a powerboat, including low speed techniques and driving at planing speed.
The course lasts 2 full days with 12 hours practical training on the water and an additional 4 hours theory. We run courses to obtain the RYA Powerboat level 2 all year round. During July and August, we run this course several times a week, with pick up in either Denia or Javea (Nou Fontana). From April through June and, then again during September and October, we plan courses on a regular basis with at least one course every two weeks. During the winter months, we run courses in accordance with students’ availability.
The Boat School course to obtain the RYA Powerboat level 2 is taught in small groups of no more than 3 students.
the RYA Powerboat level 2 is valid for driving:
– motor boats up to 10 meters overall length (LOA);
– jetskis / Personal Watercraft (PWC) all sizes.

The Boat school gift voucher for the RYA Powerboat level 2 entitles the gift card recipient to complete the course as part of an open group. You can also book three places and complete the course with family and friends.
With an open group booking, you book a place on a course and we’ll admit up to a maximum of three students onto that same course. This is the most economical option if there are less than 3 participants; however, it’s also the least flexible option if your availability is limited. The price of a seat on an open course includes fuel and mooring fees away from our base.
Price per person in an open group: 495€
This course is suitable for beginners and for drivers with experience who are looking for formal training and certification.
The minimum age for this course is 12. Candidates under the age of 16 will be issued with a certificate endorsed “Not to be in charge of a powerboat unless under the supervision of a responsible adult”. We only run this course for under 16’s if the parent or guardian is taking the course at the same time.
You won’t need a medical certificate but you should be in reasonable physical shape. To apply for the ICC (see the tab “ICC”), you will need to sign a declaration to the effect that you are physically and mentally fit to operate a pleasure craft.
Recognition in Spain
Unlike the United Kingdom, Spain requires that skippers hold a boat licence to operate boats flying a Spanish flag. The same rule applies if you buy a boat or rent a boat. Whether or not the RYA Powerboat Level 2 certificate is acceptable as proof of competence depends on your nationality, country of residence and the flag state of the vessel.
UK nationals and residents
The RYA Powerboat Level 2 course is now accepted in Spain as proof of competence for UK nationals and bona fide UK residents. This change in the law comes / came into effect on July 1st 2021.
The RYA Powerboat Level 2 Certificate is accepted as proof of competence for UK nationals and residents because the certificate is issued by their country of origin / residence. In the case of non-UK nationals and Spanish-flagged boats, you can either:
1) obtain a boat licence in your own country, or
2) obtain the Spanish Boat Licence or other Spanish recreational boating qualification.
As a school recognised by the Spanish Maritime Authority, the Boat School can issue a Spanish Boat Licence to students who have successfully completed the RYA Powerboat Level 2 course. We charge a small fee for this service to cover administrative costs.
You can find out more about the Spanish Boat Licence here.
If you plan on driving a powerboat and/or jetskis that is registered in another country (not Spain), you should check with the maritime authority of the boat’s flag state to see if this qualification is valid.
On successful completion of an RYA Powerboat Level 2 Course, UK nationals and nationals of certain other countries automatically qualify for an ICC issued by the RYA (see the tab “ICC”).
The ICC is widely recognised as evidence of competence in most European countries.
On successful completion of the RYA Powerboat Level 2 Course, UK nationals and nationals of certain other countries automatically qualify for an ICC (International Certificate for Operators of Pleasure Craft) issued by the RYA.
