The IAS Visa Wizard is the easy way to find the correct visa for you
If you want to become a British citizen through naturalization or gain ILR, you need to pass the Life in the UK test. This is also called the British Citizenship test. It is designed to test your knowledge of UK life – from its geography and history to its popular culture and food. As a citizen of the US, you will be exempt from taking an English language test to become a British citizen. But you will still need to take the UK citizenship test.
If any of the following situations apply to you, you will be required to take the test:
If any of the following situations applies to you, you will not need to take the UK citizenship test:
In the test, you will be asked a series of multiple-choice questions. The topics of these questions will be split into the following areas:
When studying for the test, you are advised to revise these key areas. There are several resources out there, such as the Life in the UK website, for example, which will provide you with example questions and practice tests.
Our lawyers advise you not to try and memorise specific questions when you are revising. This is because the questions are changed regularly and learning set questions may throw you off when they do not come up in the test. Instead, revise the key areas so that you have a good understanding on British life, which you can draw upon when answering the questions.
Our lawyers can advise and support you before you take your Life in the UK test. They will work with you to help you prepare for the test and can also assist with booking and revision materials if you need.
