‘Show me, tell me’ safety questions
Your examiner will ask you two questions, sometimes called ‘show me, tell me’ questions.
With a ‘show me’ question, you’ll need to demonstrate how you’d carry out a check, such as: ‘show me how you’d use the windscreen washer and wipers’.
A ‘tell me’ question will require you to explain how you’d carry out a check, such as: ‘tell me how you would check that the brakes are working before starting a journey’.
The questions aren’t meant to flummox you, but to show that you understand how to carry out basic safety checks. There are 19 possible questions that you might be asked, so as long as you’ve familiarised yourself with them, there shouldn’t be any surprises.
