Good Drivers Can Save Money With DriveScore.
DriveScore is a new app that offers to help users prove and improve their driving skills, enabling them to save money on car insurance and other products. DriveScore uses your phone's sensors to track how you drive, identifying where you could improve.
DriveScore monitors how you drive your car, giving you feedback and insight while building a score that can help you save money, by proving to insurers that you’re a good driver.
By putting users in control of data collected as they drive, DriveScore makes driving a safer, cleaner and fairer experience for all. DriveScore studies how you drive, analysing your driving behaviour, giving you valuable insight on your driving style and will directly help you save money on your car insurance.
DriveScore helps you to build better driving habits by offering you personalised driving tips and highlighting areas that you can improve.
DriveScore automatically measures how you drive, turning your phone into a silent driving coach. It's easy to set up and runs in the background, distraction-free (and won’t drain your battery).
Get your own DriveScore, see how you compare and track how your driving changes. See what’s positive and what to work on. Prove how well you drive.
Make your miles go further by using DriveScore to shop for better car insurance. Use your score to get enhanced offers from our insurance partners and see if you can save. A smarter, fairer way to buy based on how you drive, not how insurers think you drive.
View the full details of your trip, including overall drive rating, insights, trip stats and the precise location of each driving event recorded.
Your data is always in your control and DriveScore will be FREE, forever.
Install DriveScore on your phone, the app will then use the functionality of your smartphone such as the accelerometer, gyroscope, compass and GPS readings to determine when you are undertaking a ‘Trip’ in a vehicle.
DriveScore will use these tools to take and record measurements relating to your driving behaviour, including calculating speed, acceleration, braking, cornering and distance travelled.
Demonstrating lower-risk driving behaviour such as smooth cornering and acceleration will lead to a higher DriveScore, while actions such as sudden braking or excessive speeding will lead to a lower DriveScore.
These are some of the factors that insurers may consider when providing a quote for car insurance premiums. DriveScore offers you the opportunity to understand how your driving behaviour may impact the cost of your car insurance premium.
Take DriveScore for a spin, download the app now and help make car insurance fairer for millions of people.
Become a better driver today.

Ratings and Reviews
Is it ready for yet?
The dashboard and general appearance are great to look at, however I am wondering if this is really ready for market yet, or maybe it’s a beta release?
The primary complaint at the moment is that the mileage monitoring is rather slow. The “countdown to your score” was fine until I reached 15 miles to go. It took six journeys of 10+ miles across three days to get the app to recognise that I have gone past their minimum limit. As of today, I have been waiting for another three days to get my score and still the app says it’s calculating and ‘can take up to 24hrs’.
This has great potential, but at this moment in time…it ain’t working too good.
Developer Response ,
Hi Alan, thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback.
We do understand that there have been delays with the mileage updating on the app, and for the past few days the score was calculating. Our developers have resolved this issue, and if you go back into the app, you should see that your score has been calculated.
If you're still experiencing any issues, please let us know by emailing us firstname.lastname@example.org.
Poor for narrow country roads
I thought I would give this a try but it doesn’t seem to be ready for use yet. If I am on Motorways and A roads my driving is scored well without any events. But I have a 4x4 SUV and I live in a rural area, so I usually drive on narrow Unclassified and B roads. I am a very steady driver often with elderly passengers; yet there are many times I have to briefly brake hard for hazards like an animal running out, or meeting oncoming vehicles where one of us has to reverse to pass each other.
As an experiment I did a 100 mile journey including Exmoor with a friend and then we looked at the events reported on the app. Harsh acceleration was even recorded for driving up Dunkery Beacon! My friend was astounded at the reported harsh braking in particular. I think the problem is the app doesn’t account for road type and assumes national speed limit roads are wide enough for vehicles to pass each other. My average speed on narrow roads is 20mph or below and I really don’t think I should be driving any slower than I already am, which is the only way I might avoid “hard braking”.
I have now kept this app on my phone over a month and the 2 week score over 50 drives amounts to about 400 miles giving me a score over 950. But when a single 4 mile drive can have 2 “harsh braking” events I can’t see how useful it is going to be. I shall be uninstalling it soon.
Not perfect, but still good!
The app is not perfect, it doesn’t allow for the deer that ran across the road in front of me, I was marked down a score for my hard braking when in fact, my quick response of covering the brake, would have been a great emergency stop if I was on my driving test. I was also marked down on a couple of occasions for hard acceleration. Okay, a little sensitive I think for those. I’m now aware I could be marked down, I pull away from lights and junctions a lot slower than I used to do. I’ve probably become the driver you moan about being stuck behind even though I’m sticking to the speed limit etc. It’s a rough estimate of your driving and not totally accurate, a few little mark downs here and there won’t affect your score massively. Despite it not being perfect, I guess my score of being above 900 regularly has more than likely made me less likely to be involved in an accident where I would be to blame. Less likely to get caught for speeding. So I guess there is some gain from it.
