THIS MANOEUVRE HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THE DRIVING TEST.
Often called the 3 point turn, but officially called Turn in the Road.
However, turning around in the road is a very useful tool for drivers to learn, and will certainly be required whilst driving at some point. Whether you have to turn
your vehicle around because the road is blocked, or perhaps you take a wrong turn when trying to find a location.
When pupils first start practising this manoeuvre, they often get concerned if they can't turn the car round in 3 moves. But it's not important; the clue is in the
real title of the manoeuvre - 'Turn in the Road'!
Although all test standard learners will probably be able to complete the manoeuvre in 3 moves, there are no laws that say they have to. If, for
some reason, it wasn't possible to turn the car round in 3 moves, they can simply do their observations again, and safely complete the turn using extra moves.
