The examiner will ask you:

  • one ‘tell me’ question (where you explain how you’d carry out a safety task) at the start of your test, before you begin driving
  • one ‘show me’ question (where you show how you’d carry out a safety task) while you are driving

These relate to the maintenance and operation of your car and failure to answer one or both correctly will result in a driver fault - remember you are only allowed 15 in total on your test report.
