Do we know and the driving rules for u-turn? Do you know how to make u-turn safety?

You can only make a U-turn at traffic lights when there is a U-turn permitted sign. When you are doing a U-turn, you must give way to all other vehicles and pedestrians—even if other vehicles are facing a give way or stop sign.



At intersections without traffic lights or at breaks in the centre island of the road, you must not do a U-turn if there is a no U-turn sign.

You must not do a U-turn:

  • across a single or double continuous centre line
  • across a continuous centre line to the left of a broken line
  • over a painted island in the centre of the road
  • on a pedestrian walkway
  • at a railway crossing
  • on a bridge
  • on an overpass
  • in a tunnel
  • in an underpass
  • at limited visibility
  • at reduced visibility less than 50 m
  • on a highway
  • on a speedway

To safely make a U-turn, you must:

  • have a clear view of approaching traffic
  • complete the turn without blocking the free movement of traffic
  • give way to all vehicles and pedestrians
