According to the North Carolina Driver’s Handbook, “You should turn into the lane closest to you.”

“When making a right turn, you should turn into the right-hand lane on the four lane. Only change lanes, if needed, after you make the turn. When making a left turn onto a four-lane highway, you should first turn into the left lane,” said Margaret Howell, spokesperson for the N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles.
