You do not need to take the test if:

  • You are under 18 or over 65
  • You only need to pass the test once – you do not need to pass the test again if you are applying to become a British citizen and previously passed the Life in the UK Test as part of your settlement (ILR) application
  • You are unable to, because of special circumstances (such as a long-term physical or mental condition; you will need to provide necessary proof).
