Test rules

We are building a new version of our website. We want to make sure our immigration and citizenship services are simple to use and meet your needs.

Please help us by visiting our test site (beta) and providing your feedback. We’d love to hear from you!

There are some basic rules which you must follow during the test:

  • The test is timed - You will be allowed 45 minutes to complete the Standard Test, or 90 minutes in the case of an Assisted Test. No additional time will be made available.
  • This is a closed book test - You must not bring any test resource material into the testing venue (this includes note paper, the citizenship test resource book, study notes, etc).
  • Personal belongings may be taken into the test site however these must be stored under the desk for the duration of the test. Mobile phones and all other electronic communication/gaming equipment should be switched off while you are within the test venue.

If you do not follow these rules, you may be asked to leave the test venue and may have to sit the test again.
