COVID 19 - How to Do a 3 Point Turn in Parking Lot
- COVID-19, oh, this goofy mask.
I have to take it off.
Alright, you're going to need a mask for your driver's test.
In this day and age of COVID-19.
Today, we're doing three point turn in the parking lot.
Keep Track of Steering Wheel
For those of you doing closed circuit testing and shortened tests, you could be asked to do this, so put a piece of tape at the top of your steering wheel.
That way you can know where your steering wheel is at a glance.
Steering wheel turns one and a half revolutions to the right, one and a half revolutions to the left for full turns.
Size of Space
You're going to need to know that to do three point turn in the parking lot.
It's three parking spaces.
So when you practice this, get some pylons, and set them up, and then do the procedure as I'm going to show you here.
So let's get going.
Roll Down Windows
Before we get started doing the test, roll down the windows, especially at the back.
You'll need to get used to the road noise, as well.
It will help you with your slow speed maneuvers 'cause you can hear what's going on, and make sure you bring a mask.
Make sure you bring gloves.
You may need those for your test center.
Pull Over to the Right
You're going to pull into the space as if you would, along a curb of a road, signal to the right, and just as you can see the front of the curb just about to go into the front of the car, or the front of the vehicle, stop.
Okay, we're signaling to the right.
We've completely stopped.
Mirror signal, shoulder check, 360° degree scan, signaling to the left.
Turn the steering wheel all the way to the left, nice and slow, really slow.
Just as the cone disappears at the front, stop, and just turn your steering wheel back to straight.
So we're back to straight signal, right?
'Cause we're going to move in that direction.
Signal Every Time You Change Direction - Especially in Reverse
Vehicle into reverse, 360° degree scan, shoulder checks, check your backup camera, if you have one, all right, and looking out the back, and reversing nice and slow, nice and slow, and just about there.
Now, we look a little bit farther.
We can see the line back there, and we signal left into drive, or forward gear, and we start to go, and we turn the steering wheel all the way to the left, and we proceed, and that's how you do a three point turn in a parking lot.
Three point turn in a parking lot.
Easy to do.
Practice a couple of times.
Make sure that you signal every time you change directions with the vehicle, and when you're reversing, and going forward, and as well, when you're moving around the parking lot and whatnot.

I can't wear my mask because I can't talk to you and do what I need to talk to you, but you're going to need to wear a mask for your test.
So practice doing that.
