U-Turn technique

Hi bros and sisters, today i want to ask whether is it ok to cross your arms when u-turning for TP Test or must shuffle around the steering wheel to abide the "keep hands on steering wheel at all times."?

Is OK to cross. Impossible to always 2 hands on steering even for a right or left turn.

And Don't think shuffle is fast enough for a U turn.

Use one hand tai chi faster hehehe.. no laa.. ur tp test better look as decent as possible two hands and appearing as cautious looking as possible.. tester only want to see driver guai guai.. that appears to be their main schtick.

Steering wheel got 2 methods, hand over hand or push pull. Depends on your instructor.

If you’re asking for the sake of TP test, never cross arm, do the “always keep hands on steering wheel”. After you pass, who cares as long as you don’t go banging into cars or people

Do as per what your instructor teaches. Anything wrong just push to him. Pass already, drive what pattern also can

Accelerate very fast, pull handbrake, clutch in, step on accelerator drift and complete the u-turn.

U very bad, teach newbie do this.





Ok, Caped Baldy, I teach you correct thing -
Must start turning steering wheel before pulling handbrake, also should shift to first gear after clutch in coz car will come to a stop first mah, otherwise will stall when you release clutch

Joking Above things please dun learn.



Avoid crossing arms or wrist directly in front of you when doing u-turn during the test, you risk blocking your own hands. Also don't keep shuffling bit by bit, it looks damn cartoon. What method did your instructor teach? Private instructor or school ah?

If you learn other techniques, it might make you confused later. But below are a couple of alternate techniques so that you can see if it fits you better.

Assuming hands are on 10 and 2 o'clock positions:

Technique 1 (re-position hands to allow bigger shuffle)
1) Right hand grip steering and pull down to 4 o'clock. At the same time, left hand relax grip and slide to 8 o'clock (agar agar yourself. if that part of the steering wheel no place to grip, just slide to a spot you can grip)
2) Left hand now grip wheel and push up to 1 o'clock (or just 12 o'clock if you feel your arm not comfortable). At the same time, right hand slide back to 2 o'clock
3) Repeat from step 1 until enough. Need to repeat 2 to 3 more times to get full lock



Technique 2 (lao chiao/lorry driver underhand grip)
1) Left hand release and reverse grip the steering wheel at 10 o'clock from the inside
2) Once left hand is in position, pull with right hand until 4 o'clock while also pulling with left hand towards same direction
3) Right hand release grip, at the same time left hand continue pulling down to 4 o'clock. While left hand pulling down, right hand re-position to stretch over to the 10 o'clock position, but from the outside rim of the steering wheel.
Basically, you have left hand gripping the steering wheel from the inside, and right hand gripping from outside. So while the grip positions of you hands do
crossover, at no point will you be blocking your arms/wrist during the crossover.
4) Right hand now at 10 o'clock, pull down to 4 o'clock 1 more time.
5) Repeat from step 1. Normally just need 1 more time at most to get full lock



During test, avoid technique 2. They see lao chiao doing re-test, maybe will close 1 eye. But see newbie driver doing, may leave bad impression. Testers like to see safe drivers. Technique 2 will over-commit you to the turn and make it harder to react/suddenly turn steering wheel the other direction if a reckless biker on your right tries to squeeze through.
