Windows & Mirrors

Exam questions on the subject of windows, mirrors and theft are answered here.

Interior mirror

As the driver, you are responsible for the correct adjustment of the interior mirror and the two exterior mirrors. Please set it correctly before driving. This is the only way they can help you recognize the traffic partners around you.

You can adjust the interior mirror by turning it with both hands so that you can see the entire rear window. Please remember to first adjust the correct sitting position and then adjust the mirrors to suit you. Objects attached to the interior mirror obstruct your view and distract you from traffic. So please avoid it.

The interior mirror in the driving school vehicle is glare-free. So you won't be blinded by vehicles approaching from behind. There is a sensor in the interior mirror itself (top center) that does this for you.


Outside mirrors & theft

You can easily adjust the exterior mirrors using the rotary knob on the inside of the driver's door.

The mirrors and windows must always be clean, as this is the only way to ensure that you have a clear view at all times. You can clean the exterior mirrors and windows with normal water or use a non-aggressive window cleaner. And don't forget, as with everything else, you as the driver are responsible for keeping the windows and mirrors clean.

Press the button at the top right of the rotary knob to lock the vehicle from the inside. You must lock it when you leave the vehicle. (Theft) To do this, press the corresponding button on the radio key or stroke the knobbed surface on the door handle.

Windshield wipers

You should check the windshield wipers regularly for damage. Broken or dirty windshield wipers smear and hinder your vision. Please do not use it when the windshield is dry or frozen.
