Make a big difference with one little device
When teens are behind the wheel, they're at a higher risk of being involved in an accident than anyone else on the road. But with Esurance DriveSafe you can help your teenager become a safer driver, even when you're not in the passenger seat.
What Esurance DriveSafe can do
Enroll in Esurance DriveSafe to:
- Get essential information about your teen's driving so you can coach them on specific habits
- Receive customized alerts so you know if your teenager is speeding, accelerating too quickly, or driving past curfew
- Enjoy peace of mind knowing that they can't access their social media or check email while driving*
- Create a list of acceptable phone numbers so that your teen can always call (and receive calls from) you or any other emergency contact
- Feel secure knowing that 911 is always available
How Esurance DriveSafe works
Once you've signed up, we'll send you a telematics device free of charge with step-by-step instructions on how to get started.
Simply install the device into the onboard diagnostics port (OBD-II), which is standard on all non-electric and non-hybrid vehicles made after 1996, of the car your teen drives most and download the Esurance DriveSafe app onto their smartphone.** Using Bluetooth technology, the telematics device and smartphone app work together to track your teen's driving habits and limit cell phone use when the car is in motion.
Once you've activated the device, you can set up alerts so you know when your teenager's engaging in risky driving behaviors like speeding or hard braking.
You'll also be able to view a full summary of how often they're driving, where they're headed, and if they're doing anything unsafe like speeding. You can even see how they compare with other teen drivers. Knowing your teen's strengths and weaknesses behind the wheel can help you focus on specific areas for improvement.
Depending on your specific concerns, you can tailor your teenager's Esurance DriveSafe experience. Customize block lists, for example, so they can't tweet but can still access navigation apps and receive calls from you. You can also limit texting while continuing to allow hands-free functionality. And, of course, 911 is always available with no extra setting required.
Plus, there's no need to worry that your teen will find a way around Esurance DriveSafe — attempts to remove the device will trigger a notification to you.
