1.Test for settlement in the UK

The United Kingdom is a British Continent, including countries such as England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland. Life in the UK test is diverse for the people who are struggling to have British citizenship.  According to the British government policy, one has to clear this test to live as a permanent resident in the UK. This test can be practiced online for FREE through our website. Before participating in the test one has to study the 3rd edition of the life in the UK handbook. All the questions required for the test are available in this handbook.

2. Process of the online life in the UK test:

For the Life in the UK Test booking, first, think about training. We provide excellent training to help you pass the exam the first time.

You require the following documents:

  1. A valid photo ID to check your identity may be a passport from your country of origin /a biometric residence permit/ an approved travel document/ a UK photo card driving license or an immigration status document. (please see our FAQ section)
  2. A valid proof of your address to verify which may be an electricity bill/ water bill/ gas or a council tax bill. (CHANGE 2020: Now the center does not need proof of address but instead they require you to take a photograph on the day – so make sure you look your best)
  3. A valid email address and debit or credit card to make payment for your Life in the UK test. (This will be taken at the time of your booking)
  4. You must study the official Life in the UK Handbook: A Guide for New Residents (3rd Edition) which will help you to be ready to take the test. (I recommend that you visit our free training page which can be found on the home page of our website and this will give you everything you need to pass the Life in the UK test… the book can be full of information but not all of it is relevant for your test)
  5. You have to inform the test center if you are suffering from any disabilities and it will be considered a special request. (please see our FAQ section)


3. What is the structure of the test?

*You must answer 24 questions in 45 minutes. The questions in the life in the UK test have a multiple choice type. The person giving the test should select the right answer in the choices given. It is necessary to pass 75% of the test.

*The test is in the English language and if English is not your first language then you can train in our workshops in Nottingham, England.

*Study material for the test. The test is based on the 3rd edition of the life in the UK handbook. This handbook is available in all the book stores in the UK or can also be purchased online from the websites. The handbook has a total of 5 chapters of questions based on the test. Life in the UK test and B1 English language training is also given online because it is compulsory to clear the test.

I strongly recommend any courses from Fast Track as it was my second course with them after accomplish successfully the life in the UK test on 17th April 2021. Therefore, 3 days of passing I decided to enrol in another course with them called Driving Theory Test Training, which they help me to pass my theory test first attempt on 3rd June 2021 in just 3 weeks of online training. In addition, from my point of view it is the best place for you to consider in taking any kind of courses from Fast Track Training related to your desire. I just don’t have words to say thank you to my teachers such as Mr Gazin and Mr Rahil as they motivated me a lot by giving me online group training via zoom twice a week, but if you are not able to attend a group session they also got one-to-one session. Furthermore, the teachers are fully trained and have been teaching for over 10 years, which they are confident in giving you the support you need in order to pass your theory test first time like me, such as motivation, explanation and confidence as well as knowledge and online training from the platform plus online training via zoom. Also, I have been told from Mr Rahil, who is one of the teachers from Fast Track Training that in the future they gonna produce recorded videos explaining any gaps from each topics besides mock tests. Give a chance to yourself in passing your theory test first time with Fast Track Training! That’s very kind indeed, one more time Fast Track Training, to be honest I am more than happy in doing my second review! Elizabete

I hired fast track training for my wifes A2 test preparation and from the first telephone call till the end they were very professional. The 121 training was ideal for my wifes preparation and she passed the exam in Leicester first time. Which was a massive relief for the visa process. The classes were on time and flexible. My wife really enjoyed the experience and her confidence grew with each lesson. Rahil is a great professional. Massive family way of working.
