Here at Super Lucky I always like to champion imaginative and creative competitions - simply because they're so much more fun to enter than simple prize draws, and it's great to see photos and videos of real people instead of models and actors all the time! And of course, because they require time and effort, they have less entries and are easier to win.
The lovely folk at DSA have launched a video competition to promote awareness of the 'Show Me Tell Me' part of the driving test. If you're as old as I am, you will have passed your test in the 1990s and won't have a clue what this is about! It's a new part of the test where you have to actually show your examiner the safety checks you would do before taking your vehicle out on a journey - for example checking your oil level or tyre pressure.
On YouTube and the I Can't Wait to Pass my Driving Test Facebook page you can see some examples of the safety checks, and for the competition DSA want you to film a video of your own safety checks and upload it to YouTube. Top prize is a £150 Amazon voucher for the most entertaining and informative video, and two runners up prizes of £25 vouchers. Suggestions for your video are:
- a chat about what to look for under the bonnet
- one of the vehicle safety checks
- a vid higlighting the importance of safety checks through song
- a dramatic look at checking your head restraint
The deadline for submissions is 30th August 2011 and you can find out more about the competition at facebook.com/mydrivingtest. Good luck!
