What does a three-point turn mean in a driver's test?

Asked a year ago

Can anyone explain, in simple terms, what a three-point turn is on a driving test?

A three point turn is a three step process to switch directions when attempting a U-Turn on a road that is too narrow. For example, a three step process to change direction from going north, to going south. These kinds of maneuvers are usually performed where there is limited space or in areas where a U-turn is otherwise illegal.

A three point turn - otherwise known as a K-Turn or Y-Turn is when you have to do a U turn in a confined space or on a narrow road. First you come to a stop, make sure its safe first. Starting on the right side of the road, you take a sharp turn left, then stop when your car is sideways. You put the car in reverse and turn your wheel to the right, and move back and stop when you're facing the opposite direction you came in. Then you drive into the correct lane and drive on.

A three point turn is a useful driving skill you might employ instead of making a clean U-Turn. It is an important basic driving skill that'll help you in a literal tight spot. It is as relevant to your driving as parallel parking so take your time when learning how to perfect this.

Three point turns are usually when you need to turn around in two way streets or enclosed areas like suburbs or parking lots. Usually they are used in places where doing U-turns is either extremely dangerous or otherwise illegal, as they better fit the flow of traffic and allow time to respond in case of emergency.
