About This Quiz

As you may already know, the dashboard is the control panel in a vehicle that is located just behind the steering wheel. It displays the controls necessary for a vehicle's smooth running and operation.

Now, you may also know that not all vehicles have the same dashboard. The differentiating factors are the age of the vehicle, whether it takes gas or diesel, how many features the vehicle has and whether or not it's energy efficient. Despite this, there are always a few that all vehicles have, such as low fuel, brake warnings and service required. If you want to prove your auto knowledge, do it by taking this dashboard symbols quiz. 

Back in the day, all dashboards needed to show were oil pressure and the speed and fuel levels. The word dashboard was first used not to describe a car, but a wooden barrier in a horse-drawn carriage. They've come a long way, and now show an array of things not limited to a tachometer, turn indicators and more. At the very least, you should know that anything flashing red means bad stuff, but we're going to test you beyond that!

So if you think you've got what it takes to ace this quiz, give it a go and show us what you've got!
