Life in the UK Test

3. Cancellations, refunds and complaints

If you can’t go to the test that you booked

You must cancel your test if you can’t make it.

You’ll get a refund if you cancel your test 3 days or more before the date of the test.

How to cancel

  1. Sign into your Life in the UK account.

  2. Select ‘Confirmed tests’.

  3. Select ‘Cancel tests’.

If you’re eligible for a refund due to cancellation, the £50 fee will be refunded to the card you used to book the test - you don’t need to contact UK Visas and Immigration.

You can then book a test on another date.

Ask for a refund

You can ask for a refund if the test centre cancels the test.

You can’t ask for a refund for any other reason, for example if you brought the wrong ID, you were ill, you were late or you didn’t bring the right documents.

You must apply for a refund within 3 months of the test date.
