To become a U.S. citizen, you must pass the U.S. Citizenship test. At your citizenship interview, you will be required to take an English and civics test unless you qualify for an exemption or waiver. The English test requires you to read a sentence in English and write a sentence in English. Your entire interview will also be administered in English, so you must be able to understand and speak English. The civics test generally consists of 10 questions, and you must get 6 correct to pass the test. The 10 questions are taken from a list of 100 questions.
There are exemptions and waivers for the English and Civics tests. The exemptions and waivers depend on your age, length of time as a Lawful Permanent Resident, and health. If you believe you may be eligible for a exemption or waiver, or have other questions concerning the U.S. Citizenship test, contact Dorsett & Zapata, PLLC for a free consultation.
