Videos of the New ‘Show Me, Tell Me’ Driving Test Questions

In December 2017 there will be changes to the “Show me, tell me” part of the UK driving test. The questions you can be asked, and how you’ll be asked them will change.

During the test, examiners ask the pupil two vehicle safety questions – known as the ‘show me, tell me’ questions. Currently, both questions are asked at the start of the test, but from 4 December 2017, pupils will have to answer the ‘show me’ questions while they’re driving.

This means from December 2017, the examiner will ask you one:

‘tell me’ question (where you explain how you’d carry out a safety task) at the start of your test, before you start driving.

‘show me’ question (where you show how you’d carry out a safety task) while you’re driving.
