Welcome to the Naturalization
Self Test Practice Area!

The naturalization self test is a study tool to help you test your knowledge of U.S. history and the structure of our government. The actual test is NOT a multiple choice test. The civics test is an oral test and the USCIS Officer will ask you up to 10 of the 100 civics questions. You must answer 6 out of 10 questions correctly to pass the civics portion of the naturalization test. You will also be evaluated on your ability to speak, read, write, and understand English at your interview.

This is a sample test and USCIS is aware that there may be additional correct answers to the questions contained in this self test. Click to see a Sample Citizenship Written Questions and the New Citizenship Test.
