Life in The UK Test General

What is UK Citizenship test ?

If you are applying for naturalisation as a British citizen, you will need to show that you know about life in the UK. If you live in England, Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland, you can do this in two ways: by taking the Life in the UK Test or by taking combined English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) and citizenship classes.

The test is conducted by the Home Office, the test is a series of 24 questions based on 'Life in the United Kingdom Handbook A Guide for New Residents'. You will have 45 minutes to answer 24 questions.


Who has to take the test?

You should take the test if you are applying for naturalisation as a British citizen and your level of English is ESOL Entry 3 or above. If your level of English is lower than ESOL Entry 3 and you wish to apply for naturalisation, you will need to attend combined English language (ESOL) and citizenship classes instead. Classes will be run at your local further education or community college.


How do I know what my level of English is?

If you are not sure what your level of English is, your local further education college or learndirect centre can give you an initial assessment. If you need help finding somewhere near you to take an initial assessment, then call the Life in the UK Test Helpline on 0800 0154245.


How can I find out if my English is good enough to take the test?

If you are not sure what your level of language ability is, you should work through the tutorial on the life in the UK test website www.lifeintheuktest.gov.uk. If you do not fully understand the information then it is likely you will need to enrol on an ESOL with citizenship course.
