These questions under the bonnet are tell me questions so there’s no need to handle anything.

Q. How would you check your oil before making a journey and where would you put it should you need to top it up?

Tyres

Q. How would you check your tyres for sufficient tread depth and what should they be?
A. Use a reliable tread gauge. The tread should be a minimum of 1.6mm across the middle ¾ of the tyre and around the whole circumference.

Q. How would you check your tyres for sufficient pressure and where would you find the information about the pressures?
A. A reliable pressure gauge is needed; refer to the owner’s manual for the information. Should be checked whilst cold, an unmoved vehicle should be fine.
When checking tyres for tread or pressure a visual check is needed. The tyre should be free of any cracks, bulges or any other visual damage, check all five tyres (remember the Spare).
