Medical certificate: what is it and how can I get it?

The medical certificate guarantees that the applicant doesn’t suffer any diseases and doesn’t have any limitations which are incompatible with the governmental requirements. A medical check is very similar to the psychotechnical driving test.

To obtain a Medical Certificate one needs to make an appointment in the Driver Recognition Center for taking a coordination and reflexes test.

The navigation licence, unlike other nautical titles, is the only official title that does not expire.

With the navigation licence you will be able to sail in other countries outside Spain, as long as that country recognises the validity of the recreational licence. This title is normally recognised in most European countries, but there may be exceptions.

To sail a boat you need an official certificate, depending on the characteristics of the boat it can go from the Navigation Licence, which is the most basic certificate, to the PER, which is a more advanced certificate.

In order to sail a boat with a sailing licence, the boat must be no more than 6 metres in length and have an engine with a maximum unlimited power according to the manufacturer. If you want to sail a sailing boat, the maximum length is 6 metres.
