Practical driving test

At Kate Ryder Driver Training I ensure that you have all the knowledge and skills required to successfully pass your driving test with a Driving Standards Agency examiner.

When you get to your car the examiner will ask you 2 of the show me tell questions. If you get one or both wrong this will go down as a minor fault.

The questions

- Open the bonnet, identify where you would check the engine coolant and tell me how you would check the engine has the correct level
