Elizabeth didn't feel completely confident as a new driver - particularly with steering, as her driving instructor's car had power steering and hers didn't.

Elizabeth struggled to find affordable insurance but got the quote she was looking for from ingenie. Feedback and tips from ingenie also helped her get used to driving her own car.

I have been recommending ingenie to every friend that has passed! They've always offered them the cheapest quotes.

Elizabeth, 19

How did you hear about ingenie?

"I remember tweeting about my frustration of not being able to find an affordable insurance policy and ingenie replied with a link to their website so I had a look and they gave me the best quote!"

Has ingenie helped you become a better driver?

"Definitely! As a new driver I wasn’t always 100% confident on the roads but with the ingenie app it allowed me to see where I could improve and become a better driver."

"One particular problem I was having was that my instructor’s car had power steering and mine didn’t. So that took a lot of getting used to but as the app could tell me how my cornering was, they gave me some great tips on how to improve and adjust to it."

I look at my feedback every time I get a notification. Having a smartphone means they pop up every 10 days showing me how I’ve done and feedback on where I can improve. It’s all about improving and they tell you where you are really good too.

“Reading my driving feedback isn’t a drag or boring, it's short and very easy to do! As a new driver I wasn’t one of those who just wanted to get out there and forget the rules of the road: the feedback made sense.”

What discounts have you had so far?

"I had a £65 discount after 6 months driving with ingenie."

"If I were paying thousands of pounds for insurance I may drive differently knowing it wouldn’t go down. However, with ingenie they offered a low insurance premium and the chance to lower it even more if you’re a good driver - a win, win for a student really!"
