A K-turn is more commonly known as a 3-point turn. K-turns are generally performed when you need to turn around on a two-lane street, such as a residential street, but it is too narrow to do a U-turn. A k-turn is performed by coming to a complete stop on your side of the road, turning your wheel 90 degrees, and moving your car into the middle of the opposite side of the road (imagine you are creating a cross shape with your car and the street.) Then, place your car in reverse and back up while aligning your car in the proper direction to drive down the other side of the street. Take your car out of reverse and pull forward. You have now formed a K-turn or 3-point turn.
