At the beginning of the driving test the driving
examiner will ask you some questions on driver
maintenance and the use of ancillary controls. He/she may ask you to open the bonnet of the car.
If you are asked to open the bonnet make sure that
when you close it, it is shut securely and that the
bonnet prop is clipped in place properly because
if the bonnet opens whilst you are driving this
could be very dangerous.
If the examiner wants you to open the bonnet
he/she is likely to want you to tell them where
the oil filler cap, coolant, screen wash, dipstick
and brake fluid are.
If you are asked to check the power assisted steering:
You must: after you start the engine, just rock the
steering back and fore to make sure that
it is light.
If you are asked to check the foot brake: pump the foot brake until the peddle does not want to go down, then put your foot on the brake and start the engine. If the pedal goes down the servo assist is working properly.
There are many question that the examiner could ask at this point.
