Online Citizenship Test

For people eager to become citizens, there are plenty of legal hurdles to pass, but one of the final tests on the path to citizenship is a test of 10 questions known as the Civics Test.

If you were actually taking the test, it is not in a multiple choice format. A USCIS officer would ask you 10 questions from a list of 100 meant to test your understanding of the US and its government. In order to pass the test, you must get at least 6 out of 10 right.

Do you think you could pass the Civics Test? Test your knowledge and see if you would become a proud citizen of the United States!
