Co-op introduces policy with safety training
Co-operative Insurance has launched a new telematics product which includes tools designed to help its young driver customers to improve their driving skills.
The training modules have been developed by Co-operative Insurance in partnership with e-merge safer drivers. Co-operative Insurance describes the introduction of a range of safety modules via an online dashboard as an ‘industry first’.
The announcement comes on the back of a poll of 2,000 young drivers carried out on behalf of Co-operative Insurance in which a fifth of respondents aged 18-24yrs believed they would benefit from continued education and lessons to improve their driving skills.
The Co-op’s Young Driver Insurance dashboard will include a series of driver training modules covering speed, cornering, braking and acceleration that are directly linked to telematics feedback data.
Steve Kerrigan, head of telematics at The Co-operative Insurance, said: “With thousands of drivers already improving their driving and reducing their premiums by using our telematics technology, we believe that the modules will accelerate these benefits by providing additional tools to help our customers continuously improve their driving skills.”
Jeremy Williamson, CEO at e-merge safer drivers, said: “This is just the first stage and we’re looking forward to developing the technology further based on customer feedback, telematics data and in conjunction with The Co-operative Young Member’s Board.”
