More than 14 per cent of learner drivers now fail the Show Me, Tell Me, part of the practical driving test that was introduced in 2003.
It would seem that many learners are not getting proper training before taking the driving test for practical questions such as “Open the bonnet, identify where you would check that the engine has sufficient oil?”
Parents are being blamed for the failures as professional driving instructors teach the “Show me, Tell me” in their syllabus.
Simon Bush of Britannia Driving School said: “In the show me, Tell me part of the test, learner drivers are asked to identify various parts of the engine and to demonstrate how they would carry out basic checks and maintenance. In the L-test only one driving fault is allocated to this section of the test. All the latest “show me, Tell me” question and answers are listed on this website.”
