At the end of the integration course, you write the German Test for Immigrants (Deutschtest für Zuwanderer – DTZ). The completion of the B1 level is proof of the language proficiency you require to become a German citizen. As the last part of the integration course, you attend the orientation course, which you complete by writing the “Living in Germany” test (Leben in Deutschland). You will be well prepared to take the test in the orientation course. An examination fee of € 25.00 is charged for external particpants.
The LiD test takes 60 minutes. It is a multiple-choice test with 33 questions. If you are able to answer 17 of the 33 questions correctly, you will have passed the naturalization test and receive a certificate documenting your knowledge of the German legal system and social order. Then there will be nothing more standing in the way of you becoming a German citizen. The LiD is usually scheduled for about once a month.
For participants of our orientation courses the examination is free of charge.
