Hi Ziya and welcome to the forum. We are happy to help you.

I'm not quite sure what your sentence means since there's no context. The 'ramp' often refers to the entrance or exit roads to or from a freeway and you can say 'on-ramp' to mean the one to get on or 'off-ramp' to get off.

"Turn off the ramp" could mean that you turn in a certain direction after you leave the freeway on the exit ramp; but then you would usually say: Turn right [or left] from the exit ramp [or off-ramp].

Maybe it is trying to say: Turn off at the ramp. In other words, Get off [the freeway] at the next exit [off-ramp].

If you give me the context in which the sentence appears, I can help you better.

Best wishes,
TrysB
