Signing up to use GoCitizen.co.uk

All GoCitizen.co.uk users are required to register before taking any of the tests. There is no charge for this and the information is requested so that people can keep a record of their progress in training to pass the official test. You will need a valid email address. If you don't have one then library staff will help you to set up an address.

To register please go to the relevant GoCitizen.co.uk sign up page and complete the online form and submit it. The form will look slightly different depending upon whether you sign up within the libraries or outside the libraries. If you sign up outside the libraries you will be asked to enter a valid library barcode number. This is to allow you access from outside the libraries in future when you login to GoCitizen.co.uk.

Please read the help sheet which describes how to sign up to and use GoCitizen.co.uk. Please note that these instructions explain how to sign up outside of Bury Council Libraries. However, you can follow these instructions also if you are signing up inside the libraries. The only difference being that you will not have to enter your library barcode if you sign up inside the libraries.
