Show me / Tell me

There are 19 Show Me/Tell Me questions that you will need to know before you go to take your driving test. These are also known as "vehicle safety" questions. The Driving Examiner will ask you 2 questions out of the19, this will be 1 show me and 1 tell me. You cannot fail your driving test for getting any of the 2 questions wrong, however it will be recorded as a minor driving fault and this will mean that you've already collected a driving fault even before you've left the test centre. Please click on each of the below links to reveal the show me/tell me questions and use this page for revision.

Applying the indicators or hazard warning switch and check functioning of all indicators. You may need to switch the ignition on, but don’t start the engine.
Operate brake pedal, make use of reflections in windows, garage doors, etc, or ask someone to help, (may need to switch ignition on, prompt not to start engine).
If the steering becomes heavy the system may not be working properly. Before starting a journey 2 simple checks can be made. Gentle pressure on the steering wheel, maintained while the engine is started, should result in a slight but noticeable movement as the system begins to operate. Alternatively turning the steering wheel just after moving off will give an immediate indication that the power assistance is functioning.
Apply footbrake firmly. Demonstrate by applying parking brake (handbrake) so that when it is fully applied it secures itself, and is not at the end of the working travel.
Check is carried out by using control (turn on ignition if necessary).
Operate control to wash and wipe windscreen (turn ignition on if necessary).
Operate switch (turn on dipped headlights and ignition if necessary). Check warning light is on. Explain use.
Operate switch (with ignition or engine on if necessary), check with main beam warning light.
Set all relevant controls including fan, temperature air direction and source, and heated screen to clear windscreen and windows. Engine does not have to be started for this demonstration.
Brakes should not feel spongy or slack. Brakes should be tested as you set off. Vehicle should not pull to one side.
The head restraint should be adjusted so the rigid part of the head restraint is at least as high as the eye or top of the ears, and as close to the back of the head as is comfortable.
Operate switch (turn on ignition if necessary), then walk round vehicle. As this is a ‘tell me’ question, there’s no need to physically check the lights.
Warning light should illuminate if there is a fault with the anti-lock braking system.
Manufacturer’s guide, use a reliable pressure gauge, check and adjust pressures when tyres are cold, don’t forget spare tyre, remember to refit valve caps.
No cuts and bulges, 1.6mm of tread depth across the central ¾ of the breadth of the tyre and around the entire outer circumference.
Identify dipstick / oil level indicator, describe check of oil level against the minimum and maximum markers.
Identify the high and low level markings on header tank where fitted or radiator filler cap, and describe how to top up to correct level.

License Checker

Your driving license

Since the 08th June 2015, the paper counterpart to the photocard driving license isn't valid and is no longer issued by the DVLA. The counterpart was introduced to display driving licence details that could not be included on the photocard. These details include some vehicle categories you are entitled to drive and any endorsement/penalty points.

Pupil's with existing paper counterparts - If you already hold a paper counterpart, since 08th June 2015 it no longer has any legal status. You should destroy your paper counterpart after this date but you still need to keep your current photocard driving licence.

Pupils with paper driving licences - Paper driving licences issued before the photocard was introduced in 1998 will remain valid and should not be destroyed.If you need to update your name, address or renew your licence, you will be issued with a photocard only.

Taking your theory or driving test - Since 08th June 2015, you don’t need to take your paper counterpart with you when you go for your theory or driving test. You must still take your photocard, or your old-style paper licence - your test will be cancelled and you’ll have to pay again if you don’t.

Confirming your driver record - Before you start learning to drive we need to check everything is in order (entitlements and/or penalty points), you can do this online for free by accessing our Share Driving Licence service. The service should be used by both paper and photocard driving licence holders. You can generate a ‘check code’ to pass on to Denise's Driving School who will then check your driving licence details.

 Once you have a Check Code please pass it on to Denise's Driving School so that we can complete the checking process before your first lesson.

If you cannot generate a code online then you can call 0300 083 0013 and DVLA will provide you with a code.
