How the black box works

The black box works like a sat nav or GPS but records the way you drive. It’s a small and compact box, about the size of a small mobile phone.

We install it inside your car, out of sight.

What does the black box record?

The black box collects driving data to measure how safe your driving is. These safe driving parameters are:

  • your speed on different types of roads
  • how fast and hard you accelerate and brake
  • what time of day you drive your car
  • how fast you take corners

What do you use the data for?

We use it to work out your safer driving score every 90 days.

Depending on your score, you could earn a safer driving discount.

Can I see how well I'm doing?

You can see your scores on your online driving dashboard. You’ll also find tips to help you improve your driving and your score.
