Some of the advanced driving techniques you can learn at driving lessons schools include how to correctly navigate a three-points turn. Even skilled and experienced drivers may sometimes make the mistake of missing their intended turn, and if this occurs the driver may have no other option but to do a three-point turn in order to get back to the spot they missed. This is one of the most difficult types of turns for new drivers to learn.
When you are first attempting to make a three-point turn your driving instructor will help to minimize risk by selecting a location with a narrow street that has good visibility and light traffic. There are several steps involved in making a successful three-point turn, the first being to stop as near to the curb edge as possible and check for traffic, waiting for a 30 second gap to proceed.
