How do I indicate that I want to make a turn?

It’s required by law to use the turn signal when making a turn or switching lanes. It also protects you by letting other drivers know your intentions.

  1. Locate the turn signal lever on the left side of the steering column.

  2. Push the turn signal lever all of the way up for a right turn. Push it all of the way down for a left turn.

  3. Push the lever part of the way in either direction when you’re switching lanes. Hold it and release once the move has been completed.
