Does Your Black Box Insurance Have A Curfew?
We don’t believe in imposing a curfew on our Young Driver insurance policies, and here’s why…
At Think Insurance we’re more concerned with how you drive, not when, which is why we don’t have any curfews on our policies.
When we calculate a Young Driver insurance premium for a driver with some experience, we focus on your Driving Performance Score, and use this to help us work out what your renewal price will be. For any new or inexperienced drivers who have not taken out a Telematics insurance policy with us before, we won’t have a driving score to guide us, which means we will have no indication of your driving skill, so there is a level of trust, and risk, involved and a lower premium is offered in return for the commitment that you are prepared to have your driving monitored, and you’re going to be a good driver.
As you drive, your driving score is calculated using the data the black box records for all of your journeys.
The Black Box insurance Driving Score is calculated using the following:
- They time of day when you drive
- The amount of journeys you take
- Total amount of driving you do
- The roads you drive on
- How you accelerate
- The speed at which you drive
- Your braking performance
- The way in which you handle corners
- Rest periods when on a long journey
- Miles driven
- Vehicle location
For many drivers, driving at night time can be a necessity due to work commitments, social commitments or for any other reason, and we believe that as a young driver who has taken out a Black Box Car insurance policy with us, you should not be penalised for this, so there are no fines or curfews on our policies.
However, driving at times of the day deemed more of a risk, such as rush hour or during the night time, certainly won’t help improve your driving score, but we leave that decision up to you, as we know that sometimes, driving at those times may be unavoidable for you, and what’s the point of having a car and paying for an insurance policy if you can’t drive it when you need or want to?!
We have trust in the young drivers that are insured with us to drive responsibly whatever time of the day it is.
