Turnabout: Control / Steering Method / Observation / Vehicle Position
This maneuver generally happens only in special testing areas off the main streets. This portion of the examination tests the applicant’s ability to turn a vehicle when limited space is available. Drivers generally refer to this maneuver as either a broken U-turn or a 3-point turn.
Normally, the examiner will ask the applicant to stop the vehicle in a place with the right conditions for this maneuver and then ask for the driver to turn the vehicle around. The applicant should then be able to complete the maneuver without further directions.
