I have my driving test soon and my driving instructor has given me a couple of sheets with all the show me, tell me questions on and the answers to them.
I was just wondering how many of these questions will the examiner ask and how many do i have to get right to pass?

You do one of each:

"Locate the windscreen washer and explain how you would fill it up" - Show
"Tell me how to check tyre pressure" - Tell

Or something like that, the working is a wee bit off

Clicky

Even if you get them both wrong you only get a driver fault - so no biggy.

But they're common sense and the questions and answers are on the DSA website, so there's no excuse.

If you can't check your tyre pressures or fill up your washer bottle, you really shouldn't be owning a car anyway!

I remember my show question of how to use the horn, I just thought wow maybe passing this test is easier than I thought! Although, every single person in the car park gave just turned round and stared at me for ages.

Examiner asks two, if you get any wrong each wrong question counts as one minor.

That's not true. It is one fault for getting one wrong and it is also one fault for getting both wrong. Check your facts before posting the wrong information.

No, since he said that if you get any wrong each wrong question counts as one minor. So if you get two wrong - he would have you believe you got two driver faults instead of one as is the case.

From here:
Candidates will be asked two questions, one 'show me' and one 'tell me'. One or both questions answered incorrectly will result in one driving fault being recorded.

Also, loving the negative rep freecom2 :p:
