Security check questions - Class B

Here you will find the control questions that you will be asked during the driving test. If you want to practice for the theory test for free, you can do so here .

What is the maximum permissible total weight trailer for this car can have

see/show vehicle card

What are the consequences of driving with a trailer that is too heavy?

wall grip on the front wheels, course stability is reduced, braking distance is increased, danger of glare when the headlights are raised

How much payload can this car have in addition to us who are in the car now

see/show vehicle card

What disadvantages can you experience if you have too heavy a load in the car

Driving characteristics are reduced, braking distance is increased, as well as the risk of glare if the headlights and front of the car are raised

What is the permissible total weight of the trailer that you can tow behind this car with a driving license at B

See/show vehicle license or driver's license regulations

What are the consequences of driving with a trailer that has too much permitted total weight?

It is illegal, you get reduced road grip, course stability is reduced, braking distance is increased, as well as the risk of dazzle since the front is raised by the weight behind

Check tires and rims for damage

Visual check, check if there is anything unnatural about the wheels

Which injuries are most common

Tears in the side of the tire, dents in the rim lead to instability, bubbles in the side of the tire, the reinforcement in the tire will then be greatly reduced

Check the wear on both front wheels

Visual check, are the wheels worn evenly in the pattern?

What can wear tell you?

If there is little air pressure, the tires will be worn on the side. If there is too much air pressure, the tires will be worn in the middle. If they are worn only on one side, it can tell us that the representation may be skewed

Check the tread depth on both rear wheels

Visual inspection, possibly using a depth gauge or wear warning on the tyres. The minimum permitted tread depth on summer tires is 1.6 mm and on winter tires it is 3.0 mm. In the tire pattern we also find small lumps of rubber that indicate how worn the tire is

What are the risks of driving with too little tread depth

Poor road grip, increased risk of aquaplaning

Find the reflective vest

It must be accessible from the driver's seat, it can be in the door, the glove compartment, under the seat or in a separate room

Where would you place the warning triangle if it were necessary to display it?

It must be clearly visible to other road users. Outside densely built-up areas, it should be between 100-200m from the car and the current situation. Within densely built-up areas, the conditions should be assessed.

What is the correct air pressure in the front tires on this car?

See the instruction book or other markings on the car. (tank lid or in the door frame/on the door)

Check that the air pressure is correct in the front wheels

Visually: see if the tire is worn evenly, or use an air pressure gauge. Some tires are stock so that you may have to have a higher air pressure than stated.

Check whether both front wheels on these cars have enough tread depth

Visual inspection, depth gauge or tire wear warning

What is the requirement for tread depth on winter tires and summer tires?

Winter tyres: min 3.0 mm, summer tyres: min 1.6 mm

What is the correct tire size for this car?

Check the vehicle registration card

Check that the front wheel of the car has the correct dimension

Visual control.

How much bearing capacity must the tires on this car have

Check in the vehicle registration card. (def:

Check that the rear tires on the car have the correct load capacity

Visual control. Read on the cover

Check that all brake lights are working

Check that the brake lights on the left and right side work, as well as the high-mounted brake lights

Is it safe to drive if the brake light does not work?

No. The fault could be a blown fuse or a light bulb that doesn't work.

Check that the emergency signal is working

Turn on the lights, check all lights outside the car

In which situations is it correct and important to use an emergency signal

In the event of an emergency stop to mark a car. and that there is a situation that requires extra attention.

Check that the dipped beam is working and is set approximately correctly

Switch on the dipped beam, drive towards a wall etc. to see if there is light from both lights.

What disadvantages will it have if the low beam is set incorrectly

Dazzle of oncoming road users, and that visibility in the dark may be reduced

Check that the cornering/fog lights work

Turn on the lights/visual control

What disadvantages can there be if cornering/fog lights are used incorrectly

Danger of glare, irritation or penalty for incorrect light use

Check that the rear fog light is working

Switch on the rear fog lights using the switch

What disadvantages can there be if the rear fog light is used incorrectly?

They can be very blinding, especially if you are driving in a queue

Check that the parking lights, rear lights and license plate lights are working

These are the lights that come on automatically when you start the car. Check that they work by walking around the car.

In which situations is it important that the parking lights are in order

Parking in the dark without other light sources

Check that the brake booster is working

Press the brake until it hardens (5-6 times). Keep pressing the brake pedal while starting the car. The pedal should sink in

Is it safe to drive if this doesn't work? (explain)

As a rule, not, as this reduces the braking effect and the pedal becomes very heavy and hard

Check the brake fluid level

Check the fluid level in the brake fluid reservoir under the hood of the car

What will you do if the brake fluid level is too low?

There may be worn brake pads, which means more fluid is needed to "press" the brake pads against the brake discs. It could also be a leak. Take the car to a workshop for inspection

Check whether the brakes have bias (when you test brakes)

Drive at 30-40km/h straight ahead and brake while holding the steering wheel loosely. The car must keep its course straight ahead.

What can be the cause of sedation

There is a fault with the brakes so that they wear unevenly. If the car pulls to the left, the brakes are most worn on the left side. And most worn on the right side if it pulls most to the right. Visit workshop

Check that the warning lamp for the dual-circuit brake system is working

Identify the warning light (!), same light as park brake/handbrake, make it light up and go out. Start the engine and engage and disengage the handbrake

What will you do if the warning light (dual circuit brake system) comes on while driving

Stop, find possible cause. It could be that the two-circuit system is not working, or that there is little brake fluid, or that the handbrake is faulty. It may be a technical fault, a defective control unit.

Check that the warning light for the ABS brakes is working

Identify the warning light showing yellow text with ABS. Make it light and then turn it off. It should light up when you start the ignition and the engine should go out automatically after a few seconds

Is it safe to continue driving if the warning light comes on while driving?

Yes (orange lamp)

Check that the steering is in order when you test drive the car

Steering wheel to both sides. Check deadlock steering (max 2-3 cm), self-correction of the steering, noises and whether the car is directional.

What could be the cause of the car pulling to one of the sides

There may be an error in the configuration or different air pressure on the left and right side

Check that the power steering is working

Start the engine while turning left or right. The steering wheel should feel light when you start the car

Is it safe to drive if this does not work?

Yes, but the steering will be very heavy. If the car has electromagnetic steering, it will not be safe, as this can further damage the steering.

Check that the window cleaner is working properly

Use the wiper event to check the different speeds

What do you check on the sanding sheets

Wear, rifling, loose rubber, or streaks during wiping

Set the heater/defroster so that you can remove ice and fog from the windscreen as efficiently as possible

comfortable temperature

Show how you want to remove the dog from the rear window

Press the button for heating wires in the rear window

Show how to remove fog and ice from the mirrors

Often the same button as heating wires on the rear window. possibly own button

Check whether the car is directional when you test drive

drive the car at 30 km/h with a loose steering grip. the car must go straight ahead

what could be the cause of the car pulling to one of the sides

It could be the wrong air pressure or the misalignment of the wheels

Check that the battery is secure

Open the hood and try to push in the battery. It should not move

What are the risks of driving with a loose battery?

There may be battery acid spillage that can lead to a short circuit

Check that the horn is working

press the steering wheel and the horn

Check that the light horn is working

Flash the lights

Check that the windshield washer is working


Show top-up location for washer fluid

Show container under the hood

Check all seat belts

Wear, tears and damage. Does the belt tensioner work? Control

What are the risks of using seat belts with slack rollers?

The billet will lie loose and will not tighten well enough in the event of an impact

Locate and install the warning triangle

is performed

How far should you walk from the car before setting it up?

Mount it by the car, walk with the reflective side of the warning triangle in the direction you are going to show yourself. Put on reflectors before you go with a triangle

Put on the emergency signal

Performed by pressing the red triangle in the car

Which lights must not be on together with the emergency signal light? explain

High or low beam will reduce the effect of the emergency signal. optimally, you should have emergency lighting alone, as it gives the best effect.

Check that the airbag warning light is working

Ignition on, the light should light up and then go out

Does it matter which passengers you place in the front seat, that the car has airbags? explain

Children and short people can be injured when the airbag deploys

Check the engine oil level

Must be between min and max on dipstick for engine oil

Show the engine oil filling point

show in the engine compartment where you fill up the oil
