How big a driveway for 3 point turn?

Soooo it would seem our council now requires us to be able to drive out of our proposed driveway in front gear. I have been trying to work out how big/wide this means the driveway way needs to be with no luck? If any of the brains trust here can work this out I would be most grateful. (We apparently need to assume that 2 cars are initially parked in double garage). I would prefe r the smallest driveway to make this possible ....many thanks...

    This might help. But the council should give you the guidelines.

    Thank you you, This is exactly what I couldnt find! (Wrong google search terms..!). Our Councils website is useless, search function doesnt work & hard to find info, but will call them in due course too, in the meantime this will help. Cheers

    Minimal dimensions will depend on width of garage door and angle of approach, Only use Australian diagrams in australia. Min turning circle is 4 m inside radius, so can use 3.8 radius for clearance.
