The reason we call it a 3 point turn is because we stop the vehicle at three different points during the maneuver. It begins with you signal your intention of pulling to the side of the curb, shoulder checking to see if it’s safe and proceeding to stop by the side of the road and behind parallel with the curb. You will then want to signal your intention to turn to the left but before moving you’ll want to check your rear-view and side mirror, and performing a shoulder check. Once it’s clear, proceed to make your turn. You’ll want to proceed until you are about perpendicular with the side of the road. Avoid hitting the curb or any parked vehicles. You’ll now want to signal to the right, place the vehicle into reverse, turn the steering wheel all the way to the right, perform a 360 check and when it is safe to do so, proceed to backing up. Avoid hitting any parked cars or the curb. Once you are sufficiently turned around. You’ll want to signal to the left, place the car into drive and proceed down the same path you first arrive from. Remember, during your road test, the point of this exercise is not to see if you can place the car into different gears and turn the steering wheel. The examiner is trying to see if you can perform the maneuver in a safe manner. This means, are you signaling your intention, are you checking your surroundings before moving your foot off the brake, and are you looking in the direction of travel (both when you are in reverse and when you are in drive).
