Checking the brakes […] Push down on the brake pedal with as much force as possible.” (Driving Licence Book, 19th Edition, page 131)

But could the brakes not break from too much pressure?
– They can, but it is better if they break while you are testing them standing still than when you need to brake suddenly to avoid an accident! A sound brake system should be able to handle any pressure a human being can create.
