Can someone explain to me how lights work when making a left turn? I'm a student driver, and for some reason I still can't seem to grasp this.

When making a left turn (at least in the United States) you must wait for a green light. If the light is a green arrow, then you have a protected light and you may proceed with your left turn. If it is a standard circular green light, you must wait until opposing traffic is clear, then you may proceed. Your driving instructor will be able to help you further.

I would add that you should keep your wheels pointed straight ahead before you actually make your turn.

That way, just in case you get hit from behind while waiting to turn, you won't get knocked into the parth of oncoming traffic.
