Now, going fast and using your momentum is an essential thing when it comes to how to drift in GTA Online. However, you also need to know how to control your car when doing this, or you will end up spinning out and crashing.

Once you are going towards a turn at a decent speed, release the acceleration button but do not press the brake, as this will stop all of the momentum you just built up before the turn.

You will then need to turn into the corner in the correct direction. Press the handbrake once you have initiated the turn and keep the handbrake pressed throughout your drifting.

You will then need to press the button or key to make your car go the opposite direction of your turn to stop yourself from spinning out of control, so right if your drifting to the left and vice versa.

Finally, straighten your car out once you have finished the turn, and your drifting will be completed successfully.
