How to Turn Left in a Large Vehicle at a Complex Intersection

Hi there smart drivers. Rick with Smart
Drive Test talking to you today about how to turn left in a big truck at a
complex intersections. Stick around, we’ll right back with that information. Welcome back. Turning left in a big truck. And there’s two left-hand turning lanes here as I’ve talked about
in other videos. I’ll put that video up for you. And we’re in third gear. We’re
ready to go here. Now if you’re new to Smart Drive Test. Smart Drive Test helps
new drivers get a license, veteran drivers remain crash
free, and CDL drivers to start a career as a truck or bus driver. So if you’re
new here, consider subscribing. As well, hit that bell. That way you’ll get instant notification when I get the videos up for you. And we
go straight out [DRIVING INTO THE INTERSECTION]. Get the gear you want. Stay right out to the right. Cross the lines here. That way the big truck will come right around here. We’re up into
sixth gear here. And we’re at 50 kilometers an hour. We are up into
seventh gear. So we shifted a few gears going through the intersection there. And
that wasn’t exactly the way you do it for the purposes of a road test because
there’s no “steering and gearing” on a road test. In other words, you can’t turn and gear at the same time. But left hand turning lanes – lots going on there. But if there’s more than one turning lane, you always want to be in
the outside turning lane in a larger vehicle. For the purposes of a road test
on a left-hand turn, you want to be in the outside lane in a car too because
then you’re in the right hand lane when you go around the corner there. I’m Rick with Smart Drive Test. For more great videos click here. To subscribe click here. And

answer. Have a great day. Bye now.


  1. Wow Rick, I knew you did truck driving before but it’s great to see that you’re teaching it now too!
    I just wanted to thank you very much on your videos. You’ve been my favorite driver instructor since I started to learn how to drive. About a month ago I ended up passing my drivers exam and I wanted to tell you. But it was honestly too easy that I was embarrassed to say I passed. Though I’ve thought about it and perhaps because of you, it was too easy lol. So thank you a lot again, I’ve always appreciated what you do here. I’ll always keep in mind of your videos so I can improve myself as a licensed driver. How much more can I say thank you!! ♥︎♥︎♥︎♥︎♥︎

  2. Thanks for your tips and I’ve gotten my license since the 24th of May.I failed the first test on my turning but thank God that all of Smart Drive tips helped me.

  4. Hi Rick, I hear you often say “pick the best answer, not necessarily the right answer”. Can you explain what you mean by that as it sounds a bit counterintuitive?
