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.
