Fresh Green Light helps teen drivers safely get their license. Teens and parents can use this app to record the hours required by state law to complete a Graduated Driver’s License GDL or learner’s permit.
GDL laws were adopted after studies showed that practicing with a parent, guardian or experienced driver results in much safer drivers. This app helps make sure the practice time is completed while also giving unbiased feedback on the highest risks from each drive.
It’s important to catch issues early and correct at this critical stage of practice driving. Once bad habits are formed, it can be hard to change. The app can fill the gaps where coaching was missed or it can reinforce what has already been said. Either way, it’s a technology that can help at a vital time when the stakes are high.
FREE VERSION FEATURES:
• Records day and nighttime driving hours toward a GDL by state requirements
• Doesn’t count hours driven after curfew toward GDL
• Scores drivers in the areas of distraction, aggressive accelerations and braking
• Gives specific tips on how to improve based on driving behavior
• Unlike many big-brother tracking apps, this app only records drives when the driver chooses
• Account access is secure and can be shared with parents, guardians, driving schools and others
Most teen drivers are anxious to get a license and will be glad to use the app to complete the required driving hours.
HOW IT WORKS:
Using GPS on the phone, drivers start and stop driving trips to record the hours behind the wheel. (Disclaimer: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.)
Distractions are recognized if other apps are opened when the app is recording a drive.

Ratings and Reviews
Gives me a 50 or less every time. Tells me i'm distracted but i think its cuz it thinks i'm on the app but i'm not. triggered!!!
Developer Response ,
We apologize for the issue with the driving distraction score. If you leave the app (to go to another app for example), it will be counted as a distraction and will deduct points from your score. The score is aimed at driving safety so any distraction incidents can really lower the score significantly. Please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any further questions or concerns. We continue to improve the app with everyone’s help. Thanks.
Glitchiest App I Ever Used
The premise is good, but that’s just about all. The upload of drives to the total sum of hours is just about the glitchiest process I’ve ever had the pain of sitting through. First, the app does not actually upload the trip unless I log out and log back in, at which point the app re-downloads all my trips. The trip I then took is usually then shortened drastically. Example: after I took a half-hour trip that wasn’t uploaded, I signed out and then in just to find the trip had been saved as being five minutes long. Nope. Secondly, it doesn’t add up trips reliably - I had 6.3 hours of driving until one particular log-in, after which I suddenly had only 5. As you can see, it’s so wildly unreliable and extremely unhelpful that the better alternative is actually using the paper method and tracking all my drives manually.
Glitchy and discouraging
I’m very disappointed because I just downloaded this app on my phone after it being on my mom’s phone and having completed over 20 hours of driving. My very first trip, I get my very first POOR score. I am clueless as to why it happened, but it specifically says that I left the app, which I never did. The phone was in my mom’s hands the whole time, and nobody ever left the app. It is not fair, and it’s very discouraging. Clearly, there’s a glitch in the app. Why else would it say I left it?
