The Life in the United Kingdom test is a computer-based test constituting one of the requirements for anyone seeking Indefinite Leave to Remain in the UK or naturalization as a British citizen. It is meant to prove that the applicant has a sufficient knowledge of British life and sufficient proficiency in the English language. The test is a requirement under the Nationality, Immigration and Asylum Act 2002. It consists of 24 questions covering topics such as British society, government, everyday life and employment. It has been criticized for containing factual errors, expecting candidates to know information that would not be expected of native-born citizens as well as being just a “bad pub quiz” and “unfit for purpose”.
A pass in the test fulfills the requirements for “sufficient knowledge of life in the United Kingdom” which were introduced for naturalization on 1 November 2005 and which were introduced for settlement on 2 April 2007. It simultaneously fulfills the language requirement by demonstrating “a sufficient knowledge” of the English language.
If you are applying for settlement in the UK or naturalization as a British citizen you will need to take the test, unless you are exempt. You can find out if you are exempt from the Knowledge of Language and Life requirement by looking at the requirements pages for citizenship and settlement.
