RoSPA drivers to provide benchmark data for insurance telematics
The exclusive agreement will provide MyDrive with access to a fleet of RoSPA qualified advanced drivers. This means that, for the first time ever, an insurance telematics provider will not only be able to record the driving behaviour data of its customers but will be able to compare this to the profile of an advanced driver, developed using the data collected from the RoSPA advanced drivers.
MyDrive has installed its Dynamic Drive Recorder into the vehicles of RoSPA advanced drivers which collect second-by-second driver analysis information. This data will be used, on an ongoing basis, to assess all the drivers who use the MyDrive technology against a ‘robust, credible and objective’ benchmark.
Commenting on the new partnership, Linden Holliday, CEO of MyDrive Solutions, said: ‘Now that we have this knowledge, provided by RoSPA, we can demonstrate that our safer driving standard is not just based on our opinion as a business, but on the opinion of the most highly regarded advanced driving institution in the UK.’
Frances Richardson, RoSPA’s operations director, added: ‘For too long, the insurance industry has had no real data to help them differentiate premium levels on the basis of safer driving skill. The partnership with MyDrive will remedy this and help us at The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents to fulfil our mission of saving lives and reducing injuries.’
