It was never a "3" point turn, ever.

It had always* been "turn the car around in the road".

You lose by touching anything - the kerb, another vehicle, pedestrians etc - or by not making progress.

As long as you are getting somewhere each time you move the vehicle, you still pass the section.

That's never changed.

*Since it was first added to the test. There was a time when there was no requirement to drive backwards at all.
