Show me tell me test
If you've not heard of the "show me tell me" test, then this is something
that happens at the start of the driving practical test as opposed to on the
theory test. They ask one of each of the two types of question: that is
they will ask you to show you one thing and tell you one thing.
If you get either of them wrong then that counts as a driving test fault. In
total there are 19 questions that can be asked.
Questions will ask you a variety of different things. For instance they
might ask you to open up the bonnet and say how you would check the level of
engine coolant. Or perhaps tell them where the brake fluid reservoir is.
Some questions clearly are not obvious so you will need to learn the answers
beforehand - it is worth studying all the questions and learning the
answers. Your driving instructor should of course prepare you well for this
element of the test and you will practice opening the bonnet and identifying
the various locations of things that you need to know about, which you can
then repeat in the driving test proper.
Other questions will be about inside the car rather than under the bonnet:
for instance questions about how to put headlights on a certain beam, how to
turn on the rear fog lights and other information along those lines.
It is also worth studying an "under the bonnet" diagram that has the various
elements that you need to know about marked. For instance the location of
things such as the engine coolant, power steering fluid, dipstick, engine
oil, brake fluid and the windscreen fluid.
