Learner Lessons: Show Me Tell Me Questions
It’s important that your car is in good working order before you start the engine. You need to be aware of what you need to check, how to do it and how often to do it. Advice and information can be found in the car manufacturer’s handbook.
After your eyesight check, your examiner will ask you two questions about carrying out vehicle checks. You will be asked one ‘Show Me’ question, in which you will have to demonstrate how you would carry out certain safety checks, and one ‘Tell Me’ question, where you will have to explain how you would carry out certain checks. One or both questions answered incorrectly will result in one driving fault being recorded.
Advice and information on how to carry out vehicle safety checks will be given in your lessons, so that by the time you take your test, you will be confident and able to answer all the questions.
