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 handbook is intended to help those seeking to live permanently in the UK to gain a basic understanding of the democratic principles underlying British society, and of aspects of British culture and traditions, and to understand some of the cultural and historical references which occur in everyday conversations.

The Home Office works with the handbook publisher and test provider to monitor test performance to ensure the test remains effective and to respond to feedback from candidates on their experience of studying for and taking the test.
