The test will cost you £50. This shall be payable upon the date of booking and must be paid in full. Also prepare a proof of your address (e.g. bank or credit card statement, Council Tax bill, utility bill, letter from the Home Office with your name and address on it or UK photocard driving licence) since this will be required during the exam date itself.
One is allowed to freely choose among the over sixty testing centers. These are spread all throughout the United Kingdom to provide convenience for examinees. Be sure that you choose one that is nearest you or suits your convenience the most. Keep in mind that tardiness will hinder you from taking the exam and you cannot rebook or take a refund under such reason.
The Life in the UK test is only administered to individuals eighteen years of age and above excluding those over sixty five.
Cancellation with full refund is only allowed if you do so seven days or more before the date of the exam. Should the testing center be the one to cancel on you, you can claim your Life in the UK test refund provided that you do so within three months from supposed exam date.
