Who Can Avoid Taking the Civics Test on the Citizenship Exam?

Speaking English and understanding United States history are important requirements to become a U.S. citizen. There are three ways someone can become a citizen of the United States:

1. Birth
2. Derivation
3. Naturalization

There are many steps to becoming a citizen through naturalization, including taking a citizenship exam. The second part of the citizenship exam is a Civics test.

The Civics Test Exemption for the Naturalization Test

If you have a physical or mental disability that affects your ability to take the test, you may be exempted from the Civics test. The disability can’t be the result of using illegal drugs. You are required to provide medical documentation of your disability from your physician; approval is at the discretion of USCIS.
