U-turns often cause confusion among young drivers. The rules in different states vary when it comes to U-turns. In Western Australia U-turns cannot be made on freeways, including on and off ramps, or traffic lights unless there is a sign permitting it.

The penalties for making an illegal U-turn when not permitted is a $100 fine and two demerit points.

Consider the following road rules when making a U-turn

Making a U-turn where not permitted is 2 demerit points and $100 fine.

Failing to give way when making a U-turn is 3 demerit points and $100 fine.

Before you make a U-turn:

  • ensure it can be done safely
  • ensure you signal with your indicator to other drivers
  • give way to all other vehicles

 You MUST NOT make a U-turn:

  • when you do not have a clear view of approaching 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 U-turns are allowed over a continuous white line.
