    Exclamation Modals Modals and Modals :)

    Hello,
    Can you help me please with this issue?
    Are these 2 questions expressing a request, and ability, or an offer?
    - When can you be ready for me to pick you up so we can go out tonight?
    - Would you drive me to a rock concert at the Swing Auditorium?
    Thanks for your help :)

    The first is expressing ability, the second a request.
