No idea if the move is legal or not. I've never seen anyone stopped for it, and I've never been stopped for it.
When I'm pulling out of a driveway turning left onto a multi lane road that has a center left turn lane, if I can't get a 2 way break in traffic, I'll wait until I can get across into the turn lane and wait there until the other side of the road is clear.
