Life in the UK Test

Anyone aged 18-65 must pass the Life in the UK test as a qualifying criterion for Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR). The paper tests the applicant’s knowledge of British customs and traditions. The test must be taken through one of the 30+ approved government centres in the UK.Test centres should make special provision for disabled candidates.


Some people are exempted from taking the test, due to exceptional circumstances, but this would be only where the applicant has a long-term physical or mental disability, supported by medical evidence that they cannot sit the test. We can advise on this. From 17 December 2019, applicants are provided with a Unique Test Reference number, rather than a paper certificate.


Preparing for the test

You will be tested on information in the official handbook for the Life in the UK Test. You should study it to prepare for the test. The handbook is available as a book, an eBook, an e-Learning subscription or in audio formats. We will purchase the study materials on your behalf.

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


The pass mark is 75%.
