Increase in Practical Test "Vehicle Safety Questions" (Show-Me-Tell-Me) from 01 July 2008

From 01 July 2008, six additional "Show-Me-Tell-Me" questions will be introduced to the Practical Driving Test.
The 13 current questions remain and test candidates will still only be asked 2 out of the 19 questions.
















The additional questions are as follows;


"Show me how you would clean the windscreen using the windscreen washer and wipers

Show me how you would set the demister controls to clear all the windows effectively, this should include both front and rear screens

Show me how you would switch on the rear fog light(s) and explain when you would use it/them. (No need to exit vehicle)

Tell me how you make sure your head restraint is correctly adjusted so it provides the best protection in the event of a crash

Show me how you switch your headlight from dipped to main beam and explain how you would know the main beam is on whilst inside the car

Tell me how you would know if there was a problem with your anti lock braking system"
