Show me tell me questions

Here’s the DSA’s guide to Show Me, Tell Me Questions.

Before you start the practical driving part of your test, you’ll have an eyesight check and will be asked a couple of vehicle safety questions. These questions are commonly known as the ‘show me, tell me’ questions.

The examiner will ask you one ‘show me’ question, where you’ll have to show them how you’d carry out a vehicle safety check. You’ll also be asked one ‘tell me’ question, where you’ll have to explain to the examiner how you’d carry out the check.

If you give the wrong answer, you’ll be marked with one driving fault so make sure you do your homework.

Under the bonnet, for the show and tell part of your test
