Covid-19 Update: Temporary Closures Of Life In The UK Test Centres

26 Mar 2020, 57 mins ago

There are over 30 test centres across the UK administering the Life in the UK test. In a bid to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus, the UK government is taking precautionary measures against the pandemic to protect staff and test takers by temporarily closing all Life in the UK Test centers from 21 March until 13 April 2020.

Anyone who has a test booked during this period will therefore automatically have it rescheduled to after 13 April 2020.

In light of this temporary closure, we recommend that those who wish to book a new test should still proceed to register now to ensure that they are able to sit the test as soon as the test centres reopen after 13 April 2020.
