Not sure on when you are allowed to turn? Read our advice:
Look out for signs! If you see the sign below you can’t do a U-turn.
Be aware as if you are caught, you will be issued with a Fixed Penalty Notice (FPN), three penalty points on your licence and a £60 fine.
Before making a U-turn, always ask yourself:
Is it safe to perform the manoeuvre?
Is it legal?
Will I inconvenience other road users or pedestrians?
Can I see clearly or should I pull up on the left initially?
Are there any cyclists or motorcycles that are difficult to see?
Is the road wide enough to perform the U-turn safely?
Safe driving, from Britannia!
