Why can’t I see my score?

We need to collect enough data from the in-tele-box so that we can accurately calculate your drive like a girl score. You should be able to see your score from a month after you first bought the policy. If you still cannot access your score after this time, please call us on 0330 022 0200 or email us on service@drivelikeagirl.com. You can also ask a question via Live Chat on Your Portal.

What is the drive like a girl score?

The drive like a girl score is a way of showing you how well you ‘drive like a girl’. The higher the score, the more you ‘drive like a girl’. Depending on your score at three months, you may get a discount.

The maximum discount available is different for everyone and can be found when you get a quote. The purpose of showing your score on Your Portal is so that you can regularly monitor, and if necessary improve how you are driving to try to get the maximum available discount at three months.

Will you still score my driving after the first 3 months?

Yes, you’ll continue to get a drive like a girl score throughout your policy year and also for any subsequent years you choose to be insured with us. This is because we want to give you the chance to see how you are driving and find out how to improve.

When you renew your policy you could make further savings if you have driven ‘like a girl’ throughout the year. Please note: the drive like a girl 3-month discount is only available in the first year that you are insured with us.

How do I ‘drive like a girl’?

The telematics box (in-tele-box) fitted to your car records how you drive. It will measure how smoothly you drive by looking at your acceleration, braking and speed. It also measures when you drive and how long you go without taking a break.

To ‘drive like a girl’ and get your maximum discount you need to: drive smoothly and generally avoid rapid acceleration and harsh braking, unless it is an emergency; drive at a speed appropriate for the road you are on; avoid regular driving at night, especially between the times of 11pm and 4am; and take breaks on long journeys. Find out more at www.drivelikeagirl.com.

What do the coloured circles next to my journeys mean?

Pink is the best rating you can get – it means you have driven ‘like a girl’. In other words, you have avoided any harsh acceleration or braking and have kept to a sensible speed. Well done!

If you get a white dot this means the box hasn’t recorded enough miles for your journey to be rated. Don’t worry – this doesn’t affect your score.

If you get a blue dot this means you haven’t driven ‘like a girl’ – you may have had some harsh acceleration or braking or not always driven at a sensible speed. You should try and avoid blue dots if you want to get the maximum drive like a girl discount.
A black dot means you have had a dangerous journey. This may be because you have driven significantly over the speed limit or been very heavy on the accelerator or brakes. If you get any black dots we strongly advise you consider what specifically may have triggered this rating and avoid this driving behaviour in future.

Does my score affect my renewal premium?

Yes – after the initial 3 months you will continue to receive a rating for every journey as well as an overall drive like a girl score.

Your drive like a girl score will be a significant factor when we calculate your renewal premium. If you have consistently driven ‘like a girl’, you could receive an additional discount when you renew.

We recommend that you visit Your Portal at least once a month to help you drive safely and receive the maximum score throughout the year.

Will you cancel my policy if I don’t get a high score?

No – your premium is for 1 year regardless of your drive like a girl score. If your score is 0 you will not be entitled to a drive like a girl discount, but your policy will continue as normal and you will still have the chance to get a competitive price at renewal if you ‘drive like a girl’ for the rest of the year.
