Just fail that goddamn test and ask your parent or whoever knows how to drive to teach you.
(If that is possible in your location)

This is insane.

Ok so with Oil and Coolant levels, you might wanna use a dip stick, which will tell you how much you have.

In terms of brakes, you might wanna pump them before you sstart your journey, and with automatic cars you usually have to press the brake to put it into gear.

With tyres, check your last tire change and check how many kms you have travelled since. You would also have to go out to see if the tread is a bit bald.

You can just put sleeping pills on your instructor's coffee and break the car while learning.

You don't even have to pay for the broken stuff
