Knowing that there is a possibility of getting a discount has definitely encouraged me to drive well and keep an eye on my speed. The black box has made me the best driver I could be.

How has the feedback helped you improve your driving?

"The feedback has helped me improve my driving as it states what needs improving and having a discount every 3 months depending on how well you drive encourages me to drive well."

"I look at the feedback every 10 days when I receive an email letting me know it’s available. It’s really easy and I like to keep an eye on my driving to see if I’m on track for a discount in my quarterly review."

Having the black box fitted made me more aware of my driving and I am now able to control my speed, braking, cornering and acceleration.

Do your parents have access to your driving feedback?

"No, however I show them every so often. My parents ask me how my feedback is and I often drive when we go to meals and family parties. They are very confident about my driving and always there to help."

What made you renew with ingenie for a second year?

"ingenie gave me a very good discount to renew for the second year. At first I had doubts about the black box, but now that I’ve been with ingenie for over a year I am very happy with my insurance."

"I find the black box has actually been useful and made me become the best driver I could be."

I got a total discount of nearly £80 this year and I saved £963 at my renewal.
