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.
