quick question, and maybe getting ahead of myself, we have just got our FLR(M) and wondering about the life in the uk test for IDL in a few years, does it have to be recent to the application or can my wife take it anytime from now until when we apply?

It's ILR (Indefinite Leave to Remain)

She can take the Life in the UK test at any time

haha yes it is!!

Thanks perfect we'll get that done sooner rather than later than I guess

Is there an ILR guide on the forum like there is for FLR, I'm clearly having a slow morning and can't see one

No one has applied for ILR on the 5-year route yet (as rules were introduced in 2012, the earliest applicants will be next month) but for spouses of British citizens, it's exactly the same financial requirement as for FLR(M), plus 5-year residence requirement and LitUK test

right, of course that makes sense, I probably should have realised that!!

I'll keep my eyes peeled for the first ones to come in and continue to collect the same info we collected last time

No worries! I'm sure there will be some testimonials of ILR applications quite soon...
