Q. Show me how you would clean the windscreen using the windscreen washers and wipers

Are you looking for a driving school in Stoke on Trent to help with your Show Me Tell Me Questions?


Firstly, you will need to turn on the ignition so the washers/wipers have power. The controls will vary from car to car, but the car I give driving lessons in, which is the one in the video above, is a Ford Fiesta. To wash the front windscreen, push the end of the right control stalk in for a few seconds until there’s enough water on the window. The wipers will continue to wipe several times before stopping on their own. The rear window can be washed by pulling the stalk and holding it towards you for a few seconds. Once you’ve applied enough water, you will need to push the stalk away from you to turn the wipers off, otherwise they will continue to wipe intermittently.

Why is it important to know how to do this?

The windows may need be cleaned at any time throughout the year, not just during the winter, therefore it is important to know how to use all of your ancillary controls. Imagine driving down a fast moving road, your window gets dirty from the spray of another vehicle and you don’t know how to wash your windows. In just a few seconds the effects of not seeing clearly could be fatal.
