The Steer Clear® app is part of a comprehensive program that helps young drivers reinforce positive driving behavior. Young drivers, under age 25, who complete the Steer Clear Safe Driver Discount Program, may be eligible for a discount on their State Farm® auto insurance. The Steer Clear mobile application tracks a driver's progress through pre-set learning modules of updated content including topics such as Bluetooth, distracted driving (texting/games), and special driving situations. Drivers will no longer need to manually record their trips if the program is conducted through this app. Throughout their trips, drivers will be scored and given feedback on their braking, acceleration, and cornering. This application will also offer a code (account key) in which a mentor (parent, guardian, agent, experienced driver over 25) can receive from their driver and keep track of their driver's course progress and driving feedback/trip scores from their own device. Once a driver completes the program, they will receive a program completion certificate that they can text, email, or bring into the agent's office. Badges have been added to Steer Clear to recognize and reward a variety of specific driving accomplishments. The badges will help align users to shared goals of the app, such as scoring a certain percentage on a specific driving behavior, while acting as virtual, motivational status symbols.

Unnecessary time limit
At first when driving my mom had just started longer trips and soon realized that the time spent v.s the tracker were COMPLETELY different. Later we found out this is due to a limit the app sets for 30 minutes... so I was only getting a 4th of the time I had driven. Also be aware that you must keep your phone in a stable place otherwise it won’t score your driving. Overall the set up of the app is practical and easy to manage, just extremely touchy. On certain drives where I feel like I’ve done better than previous trips I will often have a much lower percentage, so I personally didn’t think it reflected how well I drive all too accurately but that could also just be me. Majority of my complaints aren’t anything too bad but extremely aggravating I would still recommend it to other people but I would’ve preferred a somewhat repetitive notice reminding drivers.
Good idea, very poor execution.
I’ve been told by many people that I am one of the safest drivers they know. I was taught by my mother who has never had any sort of traffic incident on her record in her 33 years of driving. This app is a wonderful idea to ensure people are driving safely, but it is not executed well at all. The app is much too sensitive. To get anywhere near 100% on acceleration and braking scores, you have to drive like you’re afraid of the pedals. To “safely” accelerate, you have to pull off so slow that people are coming through the back window! To “safely” brake, you have to start braking WAY too early, and it just makes the people behind you mad. I’m convinced that this app isn’t to make me a safer driver; this is an app to make me a danger to those around me and to myself. State Farm I hope you really read this. Driving slower than the rest of traffic isn’t safe. I tested this app driving normally, and it gave me a 50% driving score. This is intriguing because on my Drive Safe and Save app, which is also owned by State Farm, that same drive was rated at 5 stars. Perfect score. It’s also annoying and tedious that I have to manually start and stop drives in the Steer Clear app when I don’t for Drive Safe and Save.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for your feedback. We are aware of some of the concerns you have mentioned and we are currently looking to enhance the driving feedback experience for Steer Clear. Since we utilize the mobile device only to score trips we are somewhat limited with how we score. Drive Safe and Save utilizes a beacon and scores trips based off of driving speeds which we do not consider when scoring. We are evaluating new technologies to get more accurate readings for scores in the future while still only utilizing the mobile device for the best experience.
Amazing app but rating your driving needs some updates
Been using the app non stop lately. Works perfectly and teaches allot to new drivers. Just dont take its driver rating to heart because its only as accurate as ur phone and gps signal. Personally had a dmv driver in my car for a scoring to see how this app compares. I drove perfectly with the instructor giving me a 100 but the app only gave it a 90 :/, if you hit any form of traffic it also throws off the rating from what i could tell. So if u want the perfectionist medal dont attempt to get it anytime during traffic hours. Its still a perfect app that i would recommend to anyone.
