As part of the practical driving test, you will be asked 2 ‘show me, tell me’ questions. These are usually vehicle safety questions that are designed to show that you know how to carry out basic safety checks on the car you are taking the test in.
Your examiner will ask you 2 questions. One will be a ‘show me’ question, the other a ‘tell me’ question. If you answer one of the questions incorrectly, you will automatically be given a driving test fault.
There are 12 possible ‘show me’ questions and 7 possible ‘tell me’ questions. The full range of questions can be viewed on the gov.uk website, though you can also ask your driving instructor for help if you are confused or concerned about the ‘show me, tell me’ questions.
