Just as well the DVSA tester was wearing that hi-vis vest otherwise I don't think I'd have spotted him in the passenger seat there. :lol:

Agreed, it is a good idea. The test has already been moving in this direction for a few years. My kids passed in the last couple of years or so and they had a list of "show me, tell me" tasks/questions that they needed to be familiar with. I think some of them involved showing the examiner something specific under the bonnet (maybe where to fill the washer bottle or maybe check the oil?)

When I did my test, there was basically nothing about the day to day operation of the vehicle. Mind you, there wasn't even a theory test as such. The examiner just asked you a few questions in the car. They usually had a flip book of road signs they could ask about and you were almost guaranteed that one of the questions would be about motorway driving (probably because a learner would never have driven on a motorway). I have done a theory test though because I had to do one before I could apply to do my bike CBT a few years back.
