Show Me Tell Me Questions
Terms in this set (14)
Tell me how you would check that the brakes are working before starting a journey
As you move off check the brakes. They should not feel spongy and the car should not pull to one side.
Tell me where you'd find the information for the recommended tyre pressures for this car and how tyre pressures should be checked.
Information will be found using the car manufacturers guide. Check the pressure using a reliable pressure gauge when the tires are cold. Don't forget the spare tire and to refit the valve caps
Tell me how you make sure your head restraint is correctly adjusted so it provides the best protection in the event of a crash
The head restraint should be adjusted so the centre part 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
Tell me how you'd check the tires to ensure they have sufficient tread depth and that their general condition is safe to use on the road
A safe tire will have no cuts or bulges on the sides. The tread depth must be at least 1.6mm across the tire and can be measured using a tread depth gauge
Tell me how you'd check that the headlights and tail lights are working
I would turn on the ignition, turn the lights switch on, and walk around the vehicle to check the lights
Tell me how you'd know if there was a problem with your anti-lock braking system.
Warning lights should illuminate on the dashboard if there is a fault
Tell me how you'd check the direction indicators are working
Activate the hazard warning lights and walk around the car to see if all the indicators are working correctly
Tell me how you'd check the brake lights are working
Operate the brake pedal and make use of reflections/ask someone to help
Tell me how you'd check the power-assisted steering is working before starting a journey
If the steering becomes heavy, the steering may be faulty. If gentle pressure is applied on the steering wheel whilst the engine is started, a slight but noticeable movement will occur. Turning the steering wheel just after moving off will give an immediate indication that the power-assisted steering is working - steering should be easy.
Tell me how you'd switch on the rear fog lights and explain when you'd use them
Operate the switch, check warning light is on. They must only be used in low visibility conditions (less than 100m) and must be turned off when fog is gone.
Tell me how you switch your headlights from dipped to main beam and explain how you'd know the main beam is on
Operate light switch, activate main beam lights and check the BLUE main beam warning light is on
Open the bonnet and tell me how you'd check that the engine has sufficient oil.
Identify the dipstick, remove dipstick and wipe clean, reinsert and remove, checking the oil level against the minimum and maximum markings. If oil is low, top up but do not overfill
Open the bonnet and tell me how you'd check the engine has sufficient engine coolant
Identify engine coolant tank. Check minimum and maximum level indicator on the side of the tank. If it below the minimum, more coolant will need to be added - unscrew the cap when the engine is cold and pour in coolant until the maximum mark is reached
Open the bonnet and tell me how you'd check that you have a safe level of hydraulic brake fluid
Identify brake fluid reservoir, check level against high and low markings
