Show Me, Tell Me questions for a  Ford Fiesta




2014 Show me, Tell Me Questions.

Ford Fiesta.





Below are all the DSA 2014 driving practical test questions and answers for a Ford Fiesta. At the start of the practical driving test, the driving examiner will ask you two 'show me, tell me questions' based on basic vehicle maintenance.

One will be a 'tell me' how to do something question, explaining how to check the tyre pressure for example. The other question will be a 'show me' question. That's where you will have to physically show the examiner how you would do something, for example testing the horn.

You can not fail your test if you get any of the questions wrong but you could get one driving fault if you incorrectly answer one or two questions.

These questions are for a Ford Fiesta, but a lot of cars are similar.

Some answers refer to you turning on the ignition. Just turn the key a little for the electrics but don't start the car completely.
