Tell me how you would check the tyres so that they have sufficient tread depth and their general condition is safe for use on the road?
Firstly, I'd check that there are no cuts or bulges on the tyre and, using a tread depth gauge I'd make sure that there is at least 1.6 mm of tread depth across the central 3/4s of the tyre and across the entire circumference.
Open the bonnet, identify where you would check the engine oil level and identify how you would check that the engine has enough oil.
Pull the dipstick out here, wipe it with a tissues, put it back in, take it out again and see if the oil level is between the maximum and minimum markers.
If the oil is low, you would top it up by taking this cap off and filling up the oil
Identify the windscreen was resorvoir and tell me how you would check the level.
To identify the windscreen wash reservoir, look for a blue lid with a picture of a windscreen and some water squirting out.
Check the level by looking to see whether the fluid is between the two markers.
Open the bonnet, identify where you would check the engine coolant level and tell me how you would check the engine has the correct level.
The lid for the engine coolant level has usually got a triangle on it, often there's a little temperature guage inside the triangle.
You would check the engine has the correct level by seeing if the engine coolant is between the maximum and minimum markers.
Open the bonnet, identify where the brake fluid reservoir is and tell me how you would check that you have a safe level of hydrolic brake fluid

The fluid should lie between the maximum and minimum marker.

TK get out and check.
How would you check that the horn is working?

When the engines on, press the breaks. They shouldn't feel spongy and the vehicle should not move to one side.
How do you make sure your head restraint is correctly adjusted?
The top of the head rest should be level with your eyes or ears. Some head rests aren't adjustable, but if I do need to adjust it then TK
How would you check the parking break for excessive wear?
I'd put my foot on the break pedal so that I don't roll back. I'll put the handbrake down then bring it up so that it is at the end of its working travel, so that it doesnt come up any higher. I will let go of the break pedal and if the car is secured then the parking break is working.

Put gentle pressure on the steering wheel once the engine is started this should result in slight but noticeable movement.
