When can I take my online citizenship test?

You can only take your test during the 30-day period shown on your invitation. You must wait until you receive your invitation. You can’t access the test until we invite you.

  • You don’t need to contact us to get an invitation.
  • We’re working as quickly as we can to invite all eligible applicants to take the test.
  • If you contact us, we won’t have further information or invite you sooner.

After you receive your invitation, you

  • must complete the test within 30 days of the start date in the invitation
  • have up to 3 chances to take the test during this 30-day period
    • If you fail the first time, you can try again 2 more times to pass.
  • can take the test at any time during the 30-day period (including weekends and holidays)

You cannot sign in to the test

  • outside the 30-day period shown on your invitation, or
  • after you submit the test
