Highway Code, Rule 298:
Road works, level crossings and tramways (Level crossings)

Open crossings. These have no gates, barriers, attendant or traffic lights but will have a 'Give Way' sign. You should look both ways, listen and make sure there is no train coming before you cross.

Show Me / Tell Me

Question:

Show me / explain how you would check that the power assisted steering is working before starting a journey.

Show/Hide Response

Before starting a journey two simple checks can be made.

Gentle pressure on the steering wheel, maintained while the engine is started, should result in a slight but noticeable movement as the system begins to operate.

Alternatively turning the steering wheel just after moving off will give an
immediate indication that the power assistance is functioning.

If the steering becomes heavy the system may not be working properly.

Question:

Tell me where you would find the information for the recommended tyre pressures for this car and how tyre pressures should be checked.
