headlights (high and low beam)
hazard lights
brake lights

Here some of the learner drivers fail because they were using their own car and they must have forgotten to get the car checked up by a qualified mechanic. Driving school in Carlton cars are always meeting this requirements.

If you are unable to identify or complete point 1 and 2 the examiner will cancel the test or you will not be permitted to take the drive test.

For point 3, if you are unable to identify it, then the examiner will show you, it is important for you to remember it as it might be required to use it during the driving test and if you fail to point it out or implement it then you will be failed.
