We need to collect enough data from the black 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also ask a question via Live Chat on Your Portal.

The telematics 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’: 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.

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.
You will be able to see your drive like a girl score on Your Portal once we have collected enough data from the black box – this is usually after one month.
