Benjamin found ingenie in FirstCar, a magazine for young drivers who are either learning or newly passed. He’d also seen Gary Lineker, an ingenie ambassador, tweeting about how black box insurance had helped his sons as new drivers.

Benjamin had his black box fitted while he was at school and by the time he got back
it was installed and ready to connect to the ingenie app.

ingenie has helped me become a better driver because I am more cautious as to what I will get on my driving score. In order to get the biggest discounts on my insurance I need to be a better driver!

Benjamin, 18

What are the top 3 things you use your car for?

"I use my car to go to school, go to parties (this is great because ingenie does not have a night-time curfew) and to go to work."

"Some nights I’m out till 3am and I’m so thankful that ingenie does not have night-time curfews – this was a major factor when choosing them for my insurance.”

How has the feedback helped you improve your driving?

“I look at my feedback often to see if there are areas of my driving that need improving so that I am getting the biggest discount that I can possibly get."

“The feedback messages are colour coded from red to light green so it is easy to see what areas of my driving are good and which areas need improving. I can do this at a quick glance.”

The description under each area of driving tells me how ingenie measures and assesses my driving. I noticed from the guidelines that if I go around corners too quickly I will not have enough control and consequently get bad feedback.

What discounts have you had so far?

"Thankfully I have had the maximum discount so far which is £164.07 in the first quarter and I have only been driving for 4 months."

"The potential to receive money back and discounts has definitely been a major factor that has improved my driving."
