If you’re looking for the ‘show me, tell me questions’ (also known as the vehicle safety questions) then you’ve come to the right place. Below are all the DVSA driving practical driving test questions and answers.
On your test day the examiner will ask you one ‘tell me’ question at the start of the driving test before you start driving, where you’d have to explain how you’d carry out a safety task.
You’ll also be asked one ‘show me’ question where you’d actually have to show them how you’d carry out a safety task while you’re driving. The show me question could be asked at any time during your driving test including the independent driving part.
If you’re unsure how to do it when driving on the test then the examiner will ask you to pull up on the left when it’s safe and convenient and ask you you to find the control. It’s a good idea to get familiar with where the controls are and how to use them before you try it when driving.
You won’t fail your driving test if you get any of the questions wrong but you would get one driving fault if you incorrectly answer one or both questions. You can get a serious or dangerous fault if you lose control of the car when answering the ‘show me’ question.
