The final video of our Show me Tell me series looks at any miscellaneous questions that the examiner may ask you. Most of these are simply "tell me" questions requiring requiring a verbal answer to the examiner, so they will be the same regardless of what car you will be taking the test in.    

Get sharing and remember to watch all 4 parts to get the most out of these videos!

Safe driving
