Show Me – Tell Me

As you have probably gathered, our Southampton driving school is among the best Southampton driving schools so naturally our ‘Show Me – Tell Me’ page, ensures you are prepared for the questions you need to answer during your test. You will be asked one ‘Tell Me’ question at the start of the test and one ‘Show Me’ question on the move. If answered incorrectly, it counts as a minor error and could alter the result of the test. To pass the test you must not incur more than fifteen minors faults. Therefore it’s important to go through the show/tell questions page on your own and then again with your instructor. You can then relate the questions to the vehicle you learn to drive in.
