1. Overview

Use this official service to book a Life in the UK Test as part of your application for British citizenship or settlement in the UK.

How to take the test

You must book your test at an official test centre.

You don’t have to take the test if you’re under 18 or over 65.

You only need to pass the test once - you don’t need to do it again if you’re applying to become a citizen and already passed it as part of your settlement application.

Prepare for the test

You’ll be tested on information in the official handbook for the Life in the UK Test - you should study this book to prepare for the test.

You’ll have 45 minutes to answer 24 questions about British traditions and customs.
