Knowledge of Life and Language in the Islands test

In addition to meeting the English language requirement, most settlement (Indefinite Leave to Remain) applicants, and all those applying to naturalise as a British citizen, must pass the life in the UK and Island test.

When being used for Nationality applications, the test can be sat in either the UK or the Isle of Man. If the test is needed for indefinite leave to remain for immigration purposes, it must be sat in the Isle of Man.

All applicants will be tested on information contained in the official UK handbook which can be purchased by clicking on this link here - Official handbook for the Life in the UK Test

Those taking their test in the Isle of Man must also answer 5 questions in respect of the Isle of Man. Applicants can download the life in the Isle of Man supplement free of charge here - Life in the Isle of Man free supplement
