Turns and steering
 
Turning a large vehicle requires more care and knowledge than turning a passenger car. Besides observing the general turn rules outlined in the Official MTO Driver’s Handbook, you must keep other factors in mind. For example, during a given turn of the steering wheel, the rear wheels follow a shorter path than those up front. Allow this on all turns so that your vehicle doesn't strike another vehicle or stationary object.
