The testing officer will be checking several things while you are making a right turn.
When turning right you must approach in the right lane or any lanes marked as right turning lanes. You should position the vehicle after the turn in the right lane because there might be parked cars in the left lane after you have finished your right turn.
The testing officer will be checking that you correctly operate the controls for example gears, clutch, brake and accelerator to make the right turn.
When turning right, check for oncoming traffic and give way to people crossing the road
If you give way unnecessarily you can fail the test, this can be very dangerous and creates delays and confusion.
When turning left, indicate, check your mirrors and over your left shoulder checking your blind spot before moving over to make your left hand turn.
- You will fail if you repeatedly do not check over your shoulder
- You will fail if you repeatedly do not indicate when legally required.
- When turning left you must approach in the left lane or any marked left turning lanes on a laned road or as far left as you can
when on unmarked roads.
You must have a minimum of two lanes clear, when turning left or when entering a roundabout and you are turning into the left lane. You will fail if you select an unsafe gap.
Minimum number of clear lanes required when turning or when entering a roundabout
When turning left and there are multiple turning lanes, you must finish in the same lane. You will fail if you turn into the wrong lane.
When turning left and the edge line does not continue through the intersection, you must not cross the line either before turning or as you turn, you will fail if you cross the edge line.
