Life in the UK Test

This site helps you to prepare for the Life in the UK Test that is now required for settlement (indefinite leave to remain) in the UK or British citizenship. It does not give you the knowledge you need to take the test. You can find this information in the 'Life in the United Kingdom: A Journey to Citizenship' handbook. This is the only book you will need to buy to prepare for the test.

Not everyone has to take the Life in the UK Test. Visit 'About the test' to find out if you do. Depending on your level of English, you may choose to attend combined English language (ESOL) and citizenship classes.

The test is computer-based and only available to take at an accredited Life in the UK Test centre in the UK (England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland).

Helplines are available in several languages.
