When driving, how do I stop hitting the curb while turning the corners?

I just learned to drive and every time I make a u-turn or turn the corner, I always bump into the curb. This happened last week where I hit the curb very hard while making a u-turn and damaged my whole front right side tire and had to purchase a new one. Hopefully: I do drive slowly. I don't drive fast at all. Minister Of Truth: Yes I do have a license. I wouldn't be driving if I didn't. And regardless of what you say, I am still going to drive. I am just going to get more training.

heres what you do, about a second before you turn, slightly swing ur car the oppostie direction. for example, if ur about to make a U-turn, turn the wheel about 1/8 of a turn to the right then, at a safe speed, make ur U-turn. do this right before you turn but dont turn so much you go into someone else's lane. that could cause an accident or road rage. basically what this does is it creates momentum through the turn so u can get around it quicker and at a sharper angle. or like, if ur making a right turn, drift over to the left a little and then make ur turn. that will give you some room when you turn. good luck!

1] slow down a LOT 2] make wider turns 3] practice in an empty lot with curbs - you will get good at it!

slowing down will help in making judgement

Ummm, you haven't learned to drive. Take these ill collisions as warnings and learn. You DO have a license, right?
