Young Driver insurance
Co-op also offers competitive car insurance for younger drivers through the use of its Smartbox telematics technology, also known as black box car insurance.
The Smartbox is about the size of a mobile phone and is fitted under the dashboard of your car. It collects data on how well you drive and sends it to Co-op. Every 90 days you’ll receive a safer driving score and if you do well you could earn a Safer Driver Discount.
The Smartbox works like a GPS but measures the way you drive including:
- your average speed on different types of roads
- how fast and hard you accelerate and brake
- what time of day you drive
- how fast you take corners
A personalised online dashboard helps you track your performance and improve your driving score with feedback and tips on safer driving.
