Naturalization is an important milestone in the path toward U.S. citizenship. The decision to apply for citizenship is a very personal one. To help you prepare, many community organizations and social service providers, including USCIS grant recipients, offer citizenship classes and assistance with the naturalization process. Search by zip code or address to find an English and/or citizenship class offered by USCIS grant recipients in your area.

Welcome to the Civics Practice Test!

The civics practice test is a study tool to help you test your knowledge of U.S. history and government. You have the option to review the questions in English only or in English with Spanish subtitles. The actual test is in English. We have provided Spanish subtitles for those who may find it easier to learn in their native language. Use this online tool to prepare for the civics portion of the naturalization test.

This practice test contains 20 questions.

What to expect during the real test

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 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. For more information, see our Exceptions and Accommodations page.

Tips for studying

On the naturalization test, some answers may change because of elections or political appointments. As you study for the test, make sure that you know the most current answers to the questions. Answer these questions with the name of the official who is serving at the time of your eligibility interview with USCIS. The USCIS officer will not accept an incorrect answer.

The instructions and content in this practice civics test are not intended to provide legal advice or guarantee that you will pass the civics test during your naturalization interview. If you have any questions, go to our website at www.uscis.gov/citizenship , review the citizenship resources page, or consult with a lawyer.

You can find an organization in your area that offers English as a Second Language and citizenship preparation classes.
