Tell me how you would check the brakes are working before starting a journey.

Brakes should not feel spongy or slack.  Brakes should be tested as you set off.  Vehicle should not pull to one side.

Tell me how you would check the tyres to ensure they have sufficient tread depth and that their general condition is safe to use on the road.

No cuts and bulges ,1.6mm of tread across the central 3/4 of the breadth of the tyre and around the entire outer circumference.

Tell me where you would find the information for the recommended tyre pressures for this car and how tyre pressures should be checked.

Manufacturers guide, use a reliable pressure gauge ,check and adjust pressures when tyres are cold, don’t forget spare tyre, remember to refit valve caps.

Show me/explain how you would check that the power assisted steering is working before starting a journey.

If the steering becomes heavy the system may not be working properly.  Before starting a journey two 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 immediate indication that the power assistance is functioning.

Tell me how you would check that the headlights & tail lights are working. (no need to exit the vehicle)

Operate switch (turn on ignition if necessary) ,walk round vehicle.  (as this is a tell me question there is no need to physically check the lights)

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. NB: Some restraints might not be adjustable.

"Dave's Teaching Methods were Excellent & Clearly Explained..."


"I didn't expect to be actually driving myself so quickly but with Dave's Help I was driving, turning corners, and changing gears on my very first driving lesson."

Ryan Owen

"Dave was So Patient, Understanding and Flexible..."


"I was a bit wary to begin with, as my old instructor was female. But as soon as I met Dave I knew we'd get on, he is "Fab", Really Patient, and has a great Sense of Humour, it wasn't like having driving lessons, it was like we were old friends having a chat and a laugh, I Really Enjoyed the Whole Experience."

Becki Hancock

"It's Great, Now I don't have to Rely on Other People..."


"Dave's Teaching Methods were Excellent, Everything seemed So Simple. I wasn't really looking forward to learning to drive because I get so nervous. Dave made my lessons fun and I enjoyed them so much, I couldn't wait for the next."

Rebecca Radford
