How many cars can you overtake in one oncoming lane?

The issue of overtaking is always relevant among car enthusiasts. And this is quite understandable - performing this maneuver in the wrong place or with other traffic violations may result in deprivation of your license. Many drivers would not mind avoiding such a turn of events. This is why it is so important to have information regarding overtaking rules and to find out whether double overtaking is allowed under the rules.

The rules do not prohibit overtaking several vehicles, but under certain conditions. The article discusses the rules for overtaking several cars and provides a list of situations when overtaking a car is prohibited. In addition, you can familiarize yourself with the fines for overtaking and learn how not to lose your license.

Rules for overtaking two or more vehicles in a row

The concept of overtaking is given in the traffic rules - paragraph 1.2.

This is the name for a maneuver in which a car is ahead of one or more vehicles, entering the oncoming lane, and then returns to its original lane.

Therefore, the answer to the question of whether double overtaking is allowed is an unequivocal yes, but under certain conditions.

Detailed instructions regarding performing such a maneuver are given in Chapter 11 of the Rules.

Overtaking one or more vehicles is carried out in compliance with certain rules.

Before you start overtaking vehicles, you should make sure that there are no oncoming cars in the oncoming lane or that they are at a distance sufficient to complete the maneuver. In this case, there will be no danger of the vehicle moving on the roadway or interference with those participating in road traffic (11.1).

The requirement is appropriate, since any movement in the oncoming lane is a big risk for both the motorist and other participants.

If suddenly the driver’s actions lead to an accident, then he will be considered guilty.

Unless the driver of the overtaken car violated the Rules and tried to prevent overtaking - he increased the speed during the maneuver or performed other actions (11.3).

Overtaking should only be avoided under certain circumstances (11.2):

  1. While making a detour (overtaking) by a car in front.
  2. Before performing the maneuver, a left turn signal is given to the vehicle moving ahead.
  3. The car behind began to overtake the vehicle.
  4. When overtaking, an obstacle will be created for the overtaken vehicle and a danger to traffic. In this case, it is impossible to return to the lane from which the vehicle left without this risk.

Thus, the prohibition applies when maneuvering in front of or behind vehicles.

It is also prohibited to overtake when the vehicle speed is insufficient - when there is a risk of being unable to complete the maneuver for this reason.

That is, if the driver initially sees that he is having difficulty catching up with the vehicle ahead in his car, he cannot overtake.

Prohibitions also apply in certain areas (11.4):

  • in the area of ​​intersections, regardless of whether they are regulated or not. But if the car is moving on a secondary road;
  • on the zebra crossing;
  • at railway crossings and 100 meters from them;
  • when completing a climb, at a dangerous turn and other areas with poor visibility.

Additionally, Art. 9.11 Regulations

It is unacceptable to drive in oncoming traffic on a two-way road if this lane is separated:

  • tracks for trams;
  • dividing strip;
  • a certain marking (1.1, 1.3 or 1.11), if the intermittent one is placed on the left side.

The clause prohibits a vehicle from being on the oncoming lane if it is separated by a solid lane (single or double).

That is, if the driver sees in advance the end of the intermittent markings and the approaching solid markings, there is no need to overtake.

The need for advance and overtaking

Double overtaking

Overtaking is the interaction of three consecutive movements of a car on the road.

The car changes lanes to move forward in the oncoming lane, takes a detour and takes its original place in the lane. This type of movement occurs frequently on the road. And vehicle owners need to be sure when they can do this and when they can’t. A motorist's mistake will cost him a serious fine. Moreover, the car owner may be deprived of his driver's license for a long time.

There are drivers with extensive driving experience who find it difficult to distinguish between the concepts of ahead and overtaking. But a misunderstanding of these terms leads to frequent disputes with inspectors and even accidents.

Advancement is associated with the advancement of transport on the road with the speed of nearby moving vehicles exceeding the speed limit. In this option, there is no entry into the oncoming lane. And, unlike overtaking, advance can be carried out both on the left and on the right side.

Motorists need to properly understand what double overtaking is.
In the case when it is carried out after a passing car, the process is called “train” or “in single file” and is considered double overtaking. As a rule, this is allowed to the car that left first. Almost all other traffic participants who follow the first one are already breaking the rules. They create a “locomotive”.

The road surface is poorly visible, drivers do not assess the situation and a traffic accident occurs.

Responsibility for violating the rules of overtaking

All violations committed when overtaking one, two or more vehicles are qualified under Article 12.15 of the Code of Administrative Offences.

The article does not specifically indicate penalties for illegal overtaking. But you need to remember that such maneuvering is associated with the need to enter the oncoming lane.

Description of the violationQualificationType and scope of responsibility
The driver violates traffic rules and drives into oncoming traffic or onto the tracks for trams moving in the opposite direction.Part 4Fine 5000 rub. or deprivation of the ability to drive a vehicle for a period of 4 to 6 months.
Committing the specified violation again.Part 5The driver may be deprived of the ability to drive a car for a period of up to a year. The punishment is milder if the violation is recorded on camera - a fine of 5,000 rubles.

The penalty for double overtaking or regular overtaking is the same.

Rights will be deprived on the basis of Part 4 only when entering oncoming traffic in places where overtaking vehicles is prohibited.

For example, in the case of crossing solid markings while overtaking, when starting a maneuver on a bridge, or in an area with a dangerous turn.

Completing overtaking while crossing solid markings will also be regarded as an offence.


Overtaking is paradoxical. On the one hand, this is the most dangerous maneuver, during which approximately every fifth accident occurs, but at the same time, every third person killed out of 3,000 killed on the roads in Kazakhstan is killed as a result of a collision in the oncoming lane due to driver errors in performing the most dangerous maneuver - overtaking. on the other hand, we take risks voluntarily. After all, no one forces us to overtake a line of trucks rushing in the rain at high speed, for the sake of the dubious prospect of arriving home from work five minutes earlier... Let's start by repeating the Rules of the Road of the Republic of Kazakhstan, what is “OVERTAKING?” Overtaking is called “Ahead of one or more vehicles funds associated with leaving the occupied lane.” Since October 21, 2021, changes have been made to the traffic rules of the Republic of Kazakhstan and they again affected OVERTACKING. Now OVERTAKING is the process of getting ahead of one or more vehicles by leaving the occupied lane and then returning to the previously occupied lane. About driving with a minimum permitted distance was removed 2 years ago, now it is unclear how the term overtaking can be interpreted when driving in a dense traffic flow in one direction if the driver, for example, 20-30 meters from the vehicle moving in front, changed lanes into the adjacent lane, then into the adjacent lane with then the car overtook him at a higher speed. About 10 meters away I changed lanes to the right - this is most likely changing lanes and getting ahead, but it’s difficult to attribute this to overtaking. Everything is leading to the fact that the term overtaking will take on the meaning to which it is gradually approaching. That is, advancing and entering the oncoming lane. This is in the Rules of the Republic of Kazakhstan. In Russian traffic rules, overtaking is considered to be the advance of one or more vehicles, leaving to the side of the lane intended for oncoming traffic and then returning to the previously occupied lane. (side of the roadway)

And this makes sense, since we are talking about the most dangerous maneuver, and the main danger lies in wait for the driver in the oncoming lane.

I did not find any permitted overtaking on the RIGHT in the Russian Rules. At the beginning we say that overtaking is done on the left side, and then we begin to explain that there is also overtaking on the right? This is when the vehicle in front gave a signal to turn left and began to execute it, introduced! And what does it look like? It is correct to “Detour” a vehicle making a left turn or changing lanes, if the detour involves leaving a previously occupied lane.


But if the car is stationary, allowing oncoming traffic to pass, and the driver of the green car went around it on the right and did not return to the left lane - what will happen? BYPASS, or ADVANCE, but not OVERTAKING.

Overtaking traffic in the adjacent lane at a higher speed is not considered overtaking.

Such a maneuver is also considered ADVANCE.

You can read these elementary truths, which are taught in driving schools, in a traffic rules textbook. It would seem that it is not clear - follow the Rules, and you will get rid of troubles and troubles. But it turns out that not everything is so simple. If we exclude outright reckless drivers and hooligans who do not care about the provisions of the Rules and do not take into account other road users, the rest of the drivers find themselves in conflict situations that occurred due to the fact that they did not take something into account, did not think, and something simple, and they didn’t know. Because this comes with experience and is learned at the cost of mistakes, which are not always harmless, we want to talk about the subtleties that make overtaking quite SAFE.

It is generally accepted that overtaking is the most dangerous and difficult maneuver. Although in terms of chapter 1. In the definition of MANEUVERING, there is no overtaking. It is impossible to do without overtaking on the road. As statistics show, road accidents and the most terrible incidents on the road, which lead to serious consequences, death and injury to people, often occur only because of violations of the rules of overtaking by driving into the oncoming lane! All of our country roads, except Rudnenskaya, are narrow roads on which overtaking is carried out by entering the lane of oncoming traffic. Imagine for a second that all the roads suddenly became at least four lanes and oncoming traffic was separated by a steel fence, not like on the Rudny highway, where the dividing strip does not protect in any way from an oncoming car, but at least with such bollards with steel guides, they they will not save someone who wants to drive into oncoming traffic from a truck. But if a passenger car hits them at an acute angle, then such a fence may well prevent driving into the oncoming lane. In Moscow, they have already tested road fencing entirely made by Russian engineers. This fence withstood a bus that crashed into it at an angle of 20 degrees. If a bus can withstand it, then a passenger car can withstand it freely. The complexity and danger of overtaking lies in the fact that in a short time the driver has to calculate many factors and options that affect the safety of the maneuver. This includes control over the trajectory of your car, the speed and length of the overtaken vehicle, the distance and speed of oncoming vehicles, which is especially important! It is because of errors in determining the last factor that serious accidents occur.

When entering the oncoming lane, correctly assess the speed of oncoming traffic; the smaller its dimensions, the lower the speed appears. In addition, the speed of dark-colored cars is usually underestimated. At night and in conditions of insufficient visibility (for example, in fog), the speed of an oncoming vehicle is underestimated, and the distance to it appears greater than it actually is. Also, road bends, ascents and descents significantly reduce the accuracy of the assessment. Especially when overtaking trucks with a trailer, this is, firstly, their length and, accordingly, an increase in overtaking time, and we also need to take into account our national feature - this is the wobble of the trailer, and significantly, but more on that later. It is necessary to take into account that the speed of your and the oncoming car is added up: if you are moving at a speed of 80 km/h, and the oncoming car is at the same speed, then you and the oncoming vehicle are approaching each other at a speed of 160 km/h. This suggests that the approach occurs at a speed of 44.4 m/s, that is, a distance of 200 meters will be covered in less than 5 seconds.

Before you start overtaking, you need to decide for yourself - is it necessary to overtake in this particular situation? Overtaking is necessary to maintain the desired speed. However, it is advisable to overtake those vehicles that are moving at a speed lower than the speed of the traffic flow. In a city where traffic is regulated by traffic lights, overtaking has no benefit; on the contrary, each overtaking person creates emergency situations; moreover, the driver makes unnecessary gear changes, unnecessary braking, and creates unnecessary hassle for himself.

. Those drivers who drive into oncoming traffic on the 2-lane roads of Abay and Gagarin streets grossly violate the Rules. Al-Farabi. But this absolutely cannot be done. For driving into the oncoming lane (clause 9.2 of the RK traffic rules). Under Article 596-3. Code of Administrative Offences. RK year of deprivation of rights. The first sign of an unskilled driver is frequent unnecessary overtaking. We see. How does such a driver overtake everyone, sometimes making risky maneuvers, breaking the Rules, risking getting into an accident, and the end result! You catch up with him at the next intersection and stand together at the traffic light with a prohibitory signal. Then he starts again and the race is on again! And again you calmly approach him at the next intersection.

When returning to a previously occupied lane, many drivers violate the Rules and “cut off” law-abiding drivers who are forced to slow down and give way to reckless drivers overtaking them. Experiments have established that when overtaking “on the move,” the safe distance to the oncoming car is numerically equal to 9 times the speed of the vehicle being overtaken (40 km/h x 9 =360), and when overtaking while waiting, it is 10–11 times the speed (40 km/h x 10=440). When driving outside the city, the road should be visible at a distance of 500-700 meters, and in the city 300-460 meters . Driving school students, when the teacher explains the topic “OVERTAKING,” ask a simple question: “What should be the speed when overtaking?” In fact, it does not matter what the speed of the overtaking or being overtaken is, but the difference in speed between the overtaken and the overtaking vehicle is DECISIVE, i.e. How much faster are you driving than the vehicle you intend to overtake? This factor is decisive in determining the area required to complete the maneuver safely. The higher the difference in vehicle speeds, the shorter the distance and overtaking time, and vice versa. So, for example, if the speed of the overtaking vehicle is 30 km/h, and the overtaking vehicle is 60 km/h, (30). the overtaking distance is 192 meters. And the time is 13.7 seconds. At the same time, at a speed of 50 and 70 km/h (20), it will already be 455 and 19.5, that is, it will increase by more than 2 times.

Now let's move on to the nuts and bolts of overtaking.

Before overtaking, the driver must ensure that:

– The lane into which he intends to enter is clear at a distance sufficient for overtaking, and with this maneuver he does not interfere with oncoming vehicles or vehicles moving behind in the same lane (clauses 19.11 and 19.12 of the Road Rules of the Republic of Kazakhstan).

– The vehicle following behind in the same lane did not begin to overtake.

– The driver of a vehicle moving ahead in the same lane did not signal to turn left.

– Upon completion of overtaking and entering the lane (side) of oncoming traffic, he will be able, without interfering with the overtaken vehicle, to return to the previously occupied lane (one of the most common violations of the rules is the so-called cutting) .

— It is necessary to use rear-view mirrors in the cabin and side mirrors, and be sure to look out the driver’s side window, not forgetting about the “maneuvers” of visibility zones when a car located at a threatening close distance is not visible through the rear-view mirrors.

— Make sure that the driver of the overtaken car will not change lanes, that is, you need to look and calculate whether there are intersections or exits from the road ahead that the overtaken driver can turn onto. These options often help avoid accidents.

On western highways, truck drivers walking in a convoy, seeing that the driver of a car trying to overtake, doubts whether they see him. Drivers of road monsters try to help their smaller brothers - drivers of cars; for this, the truck driver turns on the right turn indicator and moves to the right, and all other trucks duplicate this maneuver. I myself found myself in such situations and was very surprised by such politeness when drivers of such large cars let you through. This is not accepted here, on the contrary, KAMAZ drivers drive in the middle of the roadway, look in the mirror and smile - they say, go for it, overtake if you can. You need to choose the moment when the dangling trailer moves to the right, and at that moment try to pass and not get under the trailer of the car you are overtaking. Moreover, looking at the road so as not to fall into a hole is not for the faint of heart.

A very important point is the final phase of overtaking, the main rule of which is not to interfere with the overtaken vehicle and not to force it to brake sharply or turn to the side. I remember an incident that happened on the Fedorovka-Kostanay highway, when the driver of a Zhiguli started overtaking an Ikarus without judging the distance to the oncoming car. And to avoid a head-on collision, he literally dived under the Ikarus, cutting it off. The driver of the Ikarus, in order to avoid hitting the Zhiguli, slowed down on a slippery road, he was carried out onto the washed out side of the road, the bus went into a ditch and overturned, six people died - this is the tragic end of overtaking and the wrong actions of the Zhiguli driver.

And now about the mutual courtesy of drivers involved in overtaking. By turning on the left turn signal, you warn those driving behind you. The driver of the car being overtaken must be warned with headlights and outside the city with a sound signal. If he then turned on the left turn signal, then perhaps he sees a danger ahead, about which he is sending you a warning. In this case, refuse to overtake. Overtaking needs to be done quickly, so you need to move with acceleration, and create a speed advantage of at least 15-20 km/h than the person being overtaken. It is precisely in these conditions that the advantage of cars with a powerful engine of 2 liters or more is felt, and these are, as a rule, foreign cars. They are dynamic and allow drivers to overtake painlessly, easily responding to the gas pedal. But on less powerful cars you need to switch to a lower gear. Try not to linger in the invisible of the driver being overtaken; maintain a gap of at least the width of your vehicle, especially if the vehicle being overtaken has a trailer. Do not move for a long time in parallel rows with him. If a long truck or bus overtakes you and overtakes you slowly, then you either move ahead of him or slow down, making his task easier, but do not move in parallel - this is fraught with consequences . And - attention! If you have doubts about the success of overtaking, return to your original place. You can start changing lanes only when both headlights of the vehicle being overtaken are visible in the rearview mirror. You need to change lanes smoothly, without reducing speed or braking.

Using “flashing” when overtaking : turn on the left turn signal when leaving the occupied lane, then turn it off when ahead; turn on the right indicator when returning to your lane. Many people do not turn off the left turn signal during the entire overtaking, thereby misleading drivers of oncoming cars.

What mistakes are most common for novice drivers?

  1. Overtaking is too extended due to the small difference in the speeds of the overtaking and overtaken cars, or they do not take into account the fact that overtaking a long vehicle (road train, bus) requires 5 times more free road than when overtaking ordinary cars.

  2. Too long observation when inspecting the situation from the side and behind before overtaking. This leads to the fact that unexpected changes in the situation ahead go unnoticed, and the car may deviate from the correct trajectory. Before overtaking, you need to inspect the situation carefully, but quickly.

  3. Early and abrupt termination of overtaking due to incorrect estimation of speed driving or making a sharp turn without traveling a sufficient safe distance. You can complete overtaking only by getting ahead of the overtaken vehicle at a sufficiently large distance.

  4. Complete absorption in your actions while driving to the detriment of monitoring the situation ahead. The road situation must be monitored throughout the maneuver.

If they overtake you. What should you do?

  1. Observe the situation ahead and, if danger arises, warn the overtaking person by turning on the left turn signal several times.
  2. If necessary, reduce your speed by turning on the right turn signal, which means that you see an overtaking vehicle and give way to it. Move to the right, and the driver overtaking you will finish passing faster. Another time you will find yourself in the place of the overtaking one.
  3. Before making a maneuver, give your turn signal in advance, at least 5 seconds before the maneuver.
  4. Do everything possible to avoid becoming involved in a traffic accident.

If overtaking is done at night, the headlights shining through the rearview mirror can blind the driver in front, so it is necessary to switch the high beam headlights to low beam in advance as soon as you are sure that the signal to overtake has been received. Turn on the high beams again when the vehicles are level with each other. We have already said that at night you need to avoid overtaking at speeds above 90 km/h , because the stopping distance exceeds the visibility of the road.

In rainy, slushy weather, it is not recommended to drive close to the car you are overtaking, as water and dirt flying out from under the wheels contaminate the windshield and impair visibility. In this case, the distance must be increased. The actions of overtaken vehicles are very important. They are prohibited from preventing overtaking by exceeding the speed limit, entering the overtaking lane, or performing any other actions.

A disciplined, competent driver, making sure that his vehicle is being overtaken, gives a hand signal, a right turn signal, that he sees and gives way to the overtaking person. If the driver of the car being overtaken sees obstacles ahead that interfere with overtaking, he must show with a gesture that overtaking is dangerous, but should not interfere with overtaking. Such mutual observance by drivers of overtaking rules creates a safe environment on the road.

Due to the difficulty and danger of overtaking, overtaking is prohibited in certain places and conditions:









ON ROADS WITH 4 (FOUR) OR MORE LANES FOR TRAFFIC IN BOTH DIRECTIONS. ACCORDING TO THE NEW Code of Administrative Offenses of the Republic of Kazakhstan, such a violation is subject to deprivation of rights for six months

AT UNregulated intersections of equal roads.

I would like to emphasize that the largest number of accidents outside the city when overtaking occur at the end of the climb, i.e. closer to the top, with driving into oncoming traffic. In addition to the climb, participants with limited visibility are turns where visibility is less than 100 meters. So, in such areas, overtaking is strictly prohibited, because you are entering the oncoming lane, and the drivers of oncoming cars do not see you, and in this situation it is quite difficult to avoid an accident, especially if the oncoming car is a truck. Road signs also inform us about the prohibition of overtaking; if they have a sign, then it indicates the prohibition zone, and if without a sign, then the sign is valid until the next intersection or until the end or beginning of the populated area, the specified point, indicated by a sign on a white background.

ATTENTION! In the Russian Federation, overtaking is prohibited: on BRIDGES, overpasses, overpasses and under them. And also in tunnels. Don’t forget in the Russian Federation, overtaking is when you enter the oncoming lane. In the Republic of Kazakhstan, on all bridges there is a double solid line - 1.3, or a single line - 1.1. Which you also can’t cross. In tunnels, oncoming traffic is usually separated by a “ bumper”

You cannot overtake through solid marking lines, especially double solid markings - 1.3. And if there are two lines - solid and broken, 1.11, then you can overtake from the side of the broken line, and if you entered the lane of oncoming traffic, then you need to return to the previously occupied lane. Why am I telling you in such detail - I just want drivers, or students who are preparing to become drivers, after reading this article, to refresh their memory of this one of the most important sections of the Rules. And “Azov” of road safety, I have seen many accidents that occurred due to violations of overtaking rules. When a passenger car drives into the oncoming lane and is driven off the road by a truck. From the impact of the Mercedes, which was overtaking at a speed of 200 km/h and did not have time to take its starting position, which is not surprising at such a speed, the truck rolled back 20 meters. Or motorcyclists, hitting a ZIL 130 in an Izha, tore the engine off its mounts, and the bodies of the motorcyclists smashed the cabin and injured the driver. You need to know this, imagine and always remember that a car is not only a means of comfortable transportation, but in inept hands, if the Rules are violated, it is a formidable weapon for others, for all road users. Be safe


So be healthy and safe and good luck on your journey.

Overtaking traffic jam through intermittent

Those caught in a traffic jam cannot move outside their lane, overtaking cars ahead. With intermittent markings, the driver can only turn the car around and go back.

First of all, this is due to the ban on overtaking cars without the opportunity to return to the same lane. There is a significant risk that, having passed more than a hundred cars, the driver will not be able to immediately occupy his lane and will end up in oncoming traffic, and this is a guaranteed accident.

Secondly, with paragraph 11.4, which prohibits overtaking a car if visibility on the road is difficult. Visibility may be limited by obstacles generated along the vehicle's path, at least 100 meters away from it. We are talking not only about construction work, but also about parked vehicles or cars stuck in traffic jams.

Violation of the rules of overtaking in this case will entail punishment determined by Part 4 of Art. 12.15 Code of Administrative Offences.

This rule does not apply only to special services vehicles (ambulance, police, fire department, etc.) if sound signals are sounded and flashing lights are turned on.

Double overtaking: allowed or prohibited?

The overtaking rules contain prohibitions and instructions for performing such a maneuver. This means that if something is not prohibited, then it is permitted. In particular, in the 2021 traffic rules there is no prohibition on double overtaking - several cars at once, be it at least two, at least three, at least 20 cars.

The main condition is that the driver must make sure that such a maneuver will be safe for him and for other road users. The fact of whether he was convinced or not is precedent-setting, that is, if an accident did not happen during a double overtaking, then it is safe, but if it happened, it is dangerous, and the driver is subject to deprivation of his license or a fine.

To be more precise, according to the rules of overtaking, the driver must make sure of several circumstances at once:

  • the oncoming lane is clear at a sufficient distance;
  • there is no solid road ahead, no overtaking sign, no pedestrian crossing, railway crossing, bridge, overpass, tunnel or overpass, end of a rise, or dangerous turn;
  • no one else in front or behind overtakes him;
  • no one ahead turned on the left turn signal.

This is an exhaustive list of prohibitions on overtaking, including double overtaking.

Overtaking an organized convoy accompanied by traffic police

The vehicle convoy may additionally be accompanied by traffic police, but only in some cases:

  1. When a convoy is organized to transport high officials.
  2. Large groups of children are transported.
  3. The transported cargo is classified into a certain category (dangerous, oversized, heavy, large).
  4. Accompanied by equipment for use in eliminating emergencies or disasters of a natural or other nature.

The rules prohibit overtaking an organized convoy of cars if it meets the following criteria:

  1. Consists of at least three vehicles.
  2. Cars are accompanied by traffic police (flash lights are on, there is a distinctive color scheme).
  3. Vehicles move with their low headlights and running lights turned on.
  4. Cars in a column move in one lane.
  5. The accompanying vehicle must also sound its horn.

It is allowed to overtake several cars in a convoy at the same time, if the participants do not give appropriate signals and there is no accompanying vehicle.

It is necessary to take into account that ahead of the column is allowed, since in this case there is no need to drive into oncoming traffic.

In practice, organized columns are sometimes accompanied by special vehicles without sound signals. Overtaking in this case will be considered a violation. Punishment will follow for driving into oncoming traffic in violation.

It is also not recommended to overtake military vehicles moving in an organized convoy. Such transport is always accompanied by the Military Traffic Inspectorate.
