How to make a u-turn

A u-turn manoeuvre is where you turn 180 degrees on the road in order to travel in the other direction. There are a number of things to think about:

 The safest way is to pull over to the left of the road by indicating left. While you are stopped on the left, indicate right, wait for a gap in both traffic directions and make the manoeuvre.

Pay special attention to cyclists approaching - ensure you look over your shoulder, not just in your mirror.

You can do a u-turn anywhere where it's safe and not prohibited. If you see this sign, then u-turns are not allowed.
