Q: Why should you walk around your car before your drivers test?
You should walk around your car before the road test for the same reasons you should walk around your car before you drive it every time you drive it: to ensure there is nothing in the blind areas around the vehicle (such as children or pets) and to visually check ALL (not just 2) of your tires, and the path between them, and for new damage to the vehicle. It’s also a good habit to check your licence plate; is it there? Does it have valid insurance? When does it expire? Sometimes, plates are stolen.
