RED DRIVING SCHOOL AND INGENIE PARTNER TO HELP YOUNG DRIVERS
Comprehensive car insurance for young drivers who pass with RED
15 October 2012: RED Driving School, the UK’s leading driving school, has teamed up with specialist young driver insurer ingenie to provide more affordable insurance for 17-25 year olds who pass with RED.
As young drivers find it increasingly difficult to purchase affordable first-time insurance, the partnership aims to get newly-passed drivers onto the road by encouraging and rewarding better driving.
ingenie fits a black box out of sight in the car which collects data on how the car is being driven. The box assesses individual driving styles and driver feedback is available via the ingenie mobile app and online.
Key areas of driving are assessed including speed, cornering, braking and acceleration. The policy is then reviewed every three months and the best drivers could receive a discount of up to 10 per cent on their insurance in the first year so, if they drive well, they pay less.
“At RED Driving School we recognise that the high cost of car insurance is one of the reasons behind many young people postponing learning to drive,” said Ian McIntosh, CEO of RED Driving School. “At RED our learners follow a structured training path which gives them the skills and confidence to pass their test and to drive safely beyond the test stage. Our partnership with ingenie will make it easy for our new drivers to get a quote from a company that recognises and rewards a safer driving style.”
Commenting on the partnership with RED, Richard King, founder and CEO at ingenie said: “Together with RED we are working to create a generation of better drivers combining high quality driving tuition and driver education with individual assessment and continuous feedback available on our mobile app and online.”
RED Driving School teaches over 100,000 learner drivers each year and has over 1,600 driving instructors on the roads.
