DrivePlus, Direct Line's new telematics app, provides personalised feedback related to your insurance proposition. It summarises your driving data and is designed to help you improve your driving skills. The safer you drive the less you could pay.

Who is DrivePlus for? This App is for new drivers who have purchased a DrivePlus policy with Direct Line.

If you’ve chosen DrivePlus CashBack and your car and smartphone are compatible, we’ll send you a Bluetooth device that starts the app as soon as you set off. So it’ll be even easier to record every mile you drive.

Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

App works fine, but need to call to receive cheque

Auto da fe

The app appears to work pretty well, but I often need to reallocate journeys to the correct transport type (i.e. Train, bus or taxi) because I don't have the telematics box in my car. However, since I've got the policy, both quarters that I was due a cheque I had to call Direct Line before a cheque would be issued. Presumably I wasn't sent a black box because my car is not compatible (VW Touran). Generally most of my short journeys get fairly poor scores, but a few long journeys bump my score up because I never speed and drive fairly smoothly on motorways. However, make sure you take occasional breaks on a very long drive.

Points cut after 1st year


I received good scores in my first year but in the 2nd, despite
driving exactly the same way my score for the same trip went down literally overnight. Time of trip and route as well as breaking affect scores. You are penalised for braking if you go over speed bumps, so you either need to drive the entire length of the bumps at less than 18mph or drive over them at 30mph to be considered safe by direct line! Usually does not pick up journeys automatically despite reinstalling the app several times. It is a source of amusement as it thought I was cycling when I was walking

Needs update


App loads instantly or first at all, this needs to be fixed.

On a driving note, app and black box needs to be more fair on shorter journeys, as someone who is a poor driver can drive 20+ miles and earn a score of 70 every journey, however a good driver who probably has driving certificates could get a low score of 50 for driving to the shop and back.

Time of day also needs to be changed, as it is a fair point to deduct points for driving in bad times of the day, combined with road risk, can give a student or somebody who works 9/5 poor ratings too for good driving.
