The Life in the UK test is based on the Life in the UK handbook, “Life in the UK: a guide for new residents”. The test is administered by PSI on behalf of the Home Office. The questions were set with the assistance of linguistic experts and professional question writers.

The tests have a number of accessibility features which are available to all candidates. These include the ability to adjust settings and use audio. Additional tailored access arrangements can be provided by test centres.
