MSPSL

MSPSL DRIVING ROUTINE

MSPSL routine is an abbreviation of Mirror, Signal, Position, Speed, Look. At 4front Driving School we encourage our students to use this process to become safe and competent drivers. 

MSPSL is an extension of the old school familiar process MSM (Mirror, Signal, Manoeuvre).

You are expected to follow this process throughout your driving test and beyond.

During the process of learning to drive, the MSPSL routine will have been explained to you from day one of your driving lessons at 4front Driving School. MSPSL should be applied on approaching any junction type and applied to other driving situations such as changing lanes and overtaking as well as dealing with traffic lights, crossings and completing manoeuvres. 

During a driving test, the examiner will be expecting you to demonstrate proficiency of the MSPSL routine in a safe, appropriately timed and courteous manner.

Mirror

You should be checking your rear view mirror and side mirrors throughout your Driving, checking your rear view mirror befor braking unless it’s an emergency stop. And check your mirrors including blind spots before pulling out, pulling in a much more. Most importantly mirrors come first.

Signal

The signal can be anything from your indicators, brake lights, reverse lights or hand gesture. This is the 2nd phase.

Position Part 3 is the position of your vehicle to stop, start or complete a manoeuvre, to park, get ready to pull in, get ready to change lanes etc.

Speed Then it is managing the speed to deal with the situation, control the braking, match the gears to the speed, increase speed, stop.

Look

You still need to look, look around, check for hazards, check your position check for other road users, be observant.
