RED to work with ingenie

16 October 2012

RED Driving School, the UK’s leading driving school, has teamed up with specialist young driver insurer ingenie to provide more affordable insurance for 17-25 year olds who pass with RED.

As young drivers find it increasingly difficult to purchase affordable first-time insurance, the partnership aims to get newly-passed drivers onto the road by encouraging and rewarding better driving.

ingenie fits a black box out of sight in the car which collects data on how the car is being driven. The box assesses individual driving styles and driver feedback is available via the ingenie mobile app and online.

Key areas of driving are assessed including speed, cornering, braking and acceleration. The policy is then reviewed every three months and the best drivers could receive a discount of up to 10 per cent on their insurance in the first year so, if they drive well, they pay less.
