Tips on U-Turn and Three Point Turn

U-Turn along the divider 

  1. Always stay in the left most lane.
  2. Slow down and make sure to know that no one is in your way.
  3. Since the U-turn is 180-degree turn the wheel almost all the way depending on the medium. If the medium is narrow turn the wheel completely, and if the medium is wider turn a bit less.
  4. Now the most important are always look at where you want to go.
  5. And at final to make it easier, just make the wheel to slide between your hands while accelerating. So that the wheel restricts themselves to move smoothly.

Three Point Over

  1. First, to make space to your left move the vehicle to the right and slow down the vehicle.
  2. Do the verification that there is no approaching vehicle either from front or back. As we will be crossing in the two-way street.
  3. Turn the Steering wheel completely till it blocks.
  4. If the turn did not happen in a single attempt, do verification again and take the reverse by turning the steering wheel completely to the right.
  5. Then turn the wheel to the left completely and keep on going till the car is straight.

Above all this, before taking a U-Turn be aware of signs prohibiting them.
