But just to be sure, you can take this basic skills test. If you get at least half answered correctly, you're good to go!

You'll be quizzed on skills like reading, writing and number calculations that you use every day. These are the skills needed to learn other skills; so you can live on your own or look after your home, get a job and stay employed, take care of your family and possessions and more.
