Prepare for the Tests

Types of Practice Tests

The actual civics test is NOT a multiple choice test. During the naturalization interview, a USCIS officer will ask you up to 10 questions from the list of 100 questions in English**.  You must answer correctly 6 of the 10 questions to pass the civics test.

** Certain applicants, because of their age and time as a permanent resident, are exempt from the English requirements for naturalization and may take the civics test in the language of their choice.
