When making a U-turn, you must:
- ensure it can be done safely;
- use your indicator to signal your intentions to other drivers;
- give way to all other vehicles, cyclists, and pedestrians on the road you are turning into.
You MUST NOT make a U-turn:
- when you do not have a clear view of approaching traffic or it interferes with other traffic;
- at traffic lights (unless there is a ‘U-turn permitted’ sign);
- where there is a ‘no U-turn’ sign;
- on freeways, including on and off ramps.
In Western Australia only - U-turns are allowed over a continuous white line.
