  • Check for oncoming traffic from both sides be patient
  • Do not go in driveways of houses.
  • When you backing up check backward by turning your head.
  • Remember in three-point turn you always turn your wheel all the way: (All the way to the left – All the way to the right  -All the way to the left )
