The Turning Sequence

80% of all accidents involving motorcycles happen at junctions so it is very important to use the correct procedure when turning.

Right hand turn

Approaching the junction (from just left of the centre of your lane) you give yourself plenty of time and:

  1. Do a REAR OBSERVATION over your right shoulder to assess what is happening behind you
  2. SIGNAL right and let it flash a few times
  3. Move across slowly
  4. If there is no on-coming traffic then do a LIFESAVER over your right shoulder and turn, making sure you do not cross over the yellow, Give Way line
  5. If there is on-coming traffic and you do have to stop then do so at Point B.
  6. When safe to move, do the LIFESAVER to the right then move off and turn, again making sure you do not cross over the yellow Give Way line.

Left hand turn

Approaching the junction (from just left of centre of your lane) you give yourself plenty of time and:

  1. Do a REAR OBSERVATION over your right shoulder to assess what is happening behind you
  2. SIGNAL left, well before the junction to give time to the vehicle behind you to see what you intend to do
  3. Do a LIFESAVER to the left before you start to turn
