What age is not required stepchildren to take US citizenship test in order to become US citizenship if the father is US citizen?

Asked over 1 year ago - San Diego, CA

When I got married her mother, my stepson is 17 and stepdaughter is 10 years of age. When my stepson is 19 and daughter is 12, they both have Green card "Permanent Resident" arrived to US in 2012. Should they waive for taking US citizenship test in order to obtain US citizenship after 3 years living here?
