The questions learner-drivers face before their practical driving test will be revised from July 1.

The new questions will cover the use of wipers, demisters, brake lights, foglights, head restraints, anti-lock braking system (ABS) warning lights and how to use controls and switches properly.

The Driving Standards Agency's chief driving examiner Trevor Wedge said: 'The questions reflect the need to show a basic knowledge about the safety checks drivers should make before driving.'
