Except EU route there is no escape from doing B1 test & life in UK test if applying for permanent residency called ILR. If the current rule doesn't gets changed for flrfp then yes she may continue to extend without English test. In my opinion if someone start practicing even couple of English sentences per day from now then by 10th year the test can easily be passed.

Yes you are hijacking someone post. Regarding your question of B1 yes you can.tehussain wrote: ↑Wed Aug 21, 2019 8:27 pmHi,
Don't want to hijack the thread or create another for such a simple query, but if someone has an A1, can they can jump straight to a B1 and then use that for extension of the spouse visa and then also use it for ilr and citizenship?
Is that a correct understanding?
Every Life Skills IELTS certificate (A1, A2, B1) has a two year validity. After that, you cannot longer use it (with some exceptions for the B1).
