The BetterDriver™ service is designed to encourage good driving habits by delivering immediate in-car feedback and trip by trip reviews.

This graph shows the number of casualty crashes per month spikes in the first year of holding a P-plate, increasing dramatically from the learner phase where a licensed driver is present in the vehicle.
We have designed BetterDriver™ to bridge the gap between accompanied and independent driving.
- P-platers represent 15% of license holders but account for 30% of accidents.
- One P-plate driver dies every 6 days on a NSW road. (National Stat).
- A US study last year found drivers who were monitored by a in car device reduce their risky behaviour significantly.
