Dutch exemption test for civic integration

A civic integration programme at the Agency for Integration and Civic Integration consists of two parts:

  • social orientation
  • Dutch

You must have level A2 for Dutch. If your Dutch is already good enough, you do not need to take any Dutch lessons. To prove your level, you can take this test.

Which test are you taking at the Huis van het Nederlands?

The test consists of two parts. You start with reading and listening. This part is done on the computer and takes half a day. If this part is too difficult, the test will stop there and you will not have passed. 

If the reading and listening test goes well, an appointment will be made for the speaking and writing test at a later date. This is done with an employee of the Huis.
