Rules for making turns

Performing turns can be tricky, especially in busy metropolitan cities like Melbourne. We’ve summarised the most common types of turns and their rules for you.

The summaries RACV provide on Victorian road rules are based on the Victorian Road Safety Road Rules 2017. We make sure to reference the exact rule where possible. When reading, keep in mind that we’re providing general information, not legal advice. If you’re looking for specific questions on any legal matter, consult with a lawyer for help.
