Show Me Tell Me on Driving Test

Driving Course FAQ- Your examiner will ask you two questions about carrying out vehicle safety checks. You’ll be asked one ‘show me’ and one ‘tell me’ question. One or both questions answered incorrectly will result in one driving fault being recorded.

Apollo driving school recommends you look at helpful material from Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA):

The official guide to Driving – the essential skills’
The official DVSA guide to learning to drive’.

Advice and information on how to carry out vehicle safety checks can also be found in the manufacturer’s handbook as all vehicles are different. Below are some example questions;

Applying the indicators or hazard warning switch and check functioning of all indicators. (may need to switch ignition on, prompt not to start engine)

Brakes should not feel spongy or slack. Brakes should be tested as you set off. Vehicle should not pull to one side.

Operate brake pedal, make use of reflections in windows, garage doors, etc, or ask someone to help. (may need to switch ignition on, prompt not to start engine)

If the steering becomes heavy the system may not be working properly. Before starting a journey two simple checks can be made. Gentle pressure on the steering wheel, maintained while the engine is started, should result in a slight but noticeable
movement as the system begins to operate. Alternatively turning the steering wheel just after moving off will give an immediate indication that the power assistance is functioning

Manufacturer’s guide, use a reliable pressure gauge, check and adjust pressures when tyres are cold, don’t forget spare tyre, remember to refit valve caps
