Black box insurance - also known as telematics insurance - involves a small device that is usually installed behind the dashboard or charging port to accurately monitor your driving. As you drive, the black box collects information about your driving skills. The insurer will be able to see if you're a safe and skilled driver, and therefore the information could reduce your premium at renewal.
Although black box insurance is typically used by young drivers, it's become increasingly popular amongst drivers with a few years of experience behind the wheel. Drivers from all ages are interested in black box insurance as it can help reduce your premium. Please note that black box car insurance is not appropriate if you car has been modified.GET A BLACK BOX INSURANCE QUOTE
HOW DOES BLACK BOX INSURANCE WORK?
A black box will be installed in your car to monitor your driving style using specialist telematics technology. Some of the things it will monitor are:
- Sudden manoeuvres
Your insurer will give you a regular 'driver score' depending on your driving style. Your score indicates how safe a driver they believe you to be. You'll be rewarded with lower premiums when renewing your policy if you consistently achieve a good score.
As the policyholder, you can easily check the driver score by logging into your account on the app.

BLACK BOX INSURANCE FAQS
Read on to find our more about telematics insurance including what it covers, how it works and how to make a claim if you need to.
Black box insurance is for all drivers, with any amount of driving experience! Although typically it's popular with young drivers, Be Wiser's black box insurance is for drivers of any age.
You'll find that black box insurance is popular with new drivers (of any age), because they usually get quoted higher premiums when taking out their first insurance. Since they've just passed their test, they're considered "high risk" drivers on the road. Black box insurance allows drivers to prove that they are a safe driver through allowing the tag to monitor their skills, helping to lower their premium at renewal.
Black boxes are small and discreet, and ours is self-install. It's usually fitted behind the dashboard or charging port.
Anyone insured on the policy who drives the car will have their driving monitored. The box isn't able to recognise who is behind the wheel, so it's important you remind them to drive carefully, as their driving could have a significant impact on your score if not - or potentially result in a cancellation of the policy.
If you consistently receive bad driving feedback, this may impact your premium when you come to renew your policy. Many insurers will base their quote upon the results from the data collected in your first year using your black box insurance policy.
In some instances, if you're repeatedly breaking the black box insurance rules - such as excessive speed - this could lead to a warning being issued or even possible cancellation of the policy.
The app is designed not only to help you prove your great driving skills, but also assist and highlight any driving behaviours that need to be improved, like harsh breaking or speeding. Make sure to check on the app regularly to keep track of your score, and to avoid receiving bad feedback for multiple 'bad' trips.
