Life in the UK Test is part of your application for citizenship or settlement. You’ll be tested on your knowledge of British traditions and customs.
Who should take the test
You have to take the Life in the UK Test if you’re aged 18 to 65 and wish to become a British citizen.
You don’t have to take it again if you’re applying to become a citizen and already passed it as part of your settlement application.
The fee for the test is £50.
If you pass the test
You must get 75% or more in the test to pass.
You’ll get a pass notification letter. You must send the original with your citizenship or settlement application to prove you passed.
If you’re applying for settlement your pass letter will be returned to you.
If you’re applying for citizenship it will be kept by UK Visas and Immigration.
You’ll only get 1 copy of your pass letter – you can’t get a replacement.
If you fail the test
You must wait 7 days before taking the test again, but you can take the test as many times as you need to. You’ll need to book and pay again each time.
