Do you need to signal when making a 3 point turn?

If you disconnected your seatbelt during the 3-point turn, you must signal right after entering the proper lane, check your mirrors, glance over the right shoulder and pull over to the curb when it is safe and reconnect your seatbelt.

When preparing to turn you should?

As you prepare to turn, reduce speed and stay as far to the right as possible. Begin the turn in the lane nearest to the right-hand curb and end the turn in the lane nearest the right-hand curb. Give turn signal. Yield to pedestrians who may be crossing your path.
