The information requested is not held centrally; to obtain it could only be done at disproportionate cost.

Customers are required to book a Life in the UK test as part of their application for British Citizenship or Settlement in the UK and are unable to complete their application until they have passed the test.

Results are issued to the customer within 10 minutes of completing the test. If a customer fails, they need to wait 7 days before taking the test again and are able to take the test as many times as they need to.

Once a customer has passed the test and has then submitted their application, a decision will be made as soon as possible.
