How to use the hand brake correctly when turning? - image

This technique is used predominantly in U-turns or turns of 90 degrees. How is it done? Find a few rules below.

  • Before entering the road curve, brake with your engine and use the brake pedal, so that you start turning in second gear.
  • Once you’re at the turn, turn the steering wheel and pull on the hand brake. When the car starts skidding, let go off the brake and make a counter-turn with the steering wheel
  • Accelerate when the car is in a straight line to leave the turn. You may reduce gears to one if the speed is too low
