What is Novo Drive – Usage-Based Insurance (UBI)
Typically, car insurance rates are based on a variety of factors related to your driving history. Novo Drive personalizes your insurance rate based on your actual driving behavior. The Novo Drive ("UBI") program utilizes technology to obtain driving information including, but not limited to the time of day, speed at which the vehicle is operated, and mobile phone use. Driving information may be collected and provided to Novo through Novo's mobile app. At renewal, the rates provided in their insurance quote will take into account the driver’s driving behavior based on information collected during the prior 6-month period.
What is the Novo Drive Participation Discount?
Currently, consumers purchasing auto insurance can choose to participate in our Novo Drive (“UBI”) program. Consumers who participate in this program agree to share information about their driving behavior with Novo in exchange for receiving a “New Business Participation Discount”. At renewal, the rates provided in their insurance quote will take into account the driver’s driving behavior based on information collected during the prior 6 month period.
How do I know I am eligible?
To be eligible to participate in the Novo Drive UBI program, the insured must: 1. provide a valid email address; 2. meet any vehicle technology and communication technology requirements; and 3. meet other eligibility requirements as required by Novo guidelines.
What actual data are you collecting?
The following data is gathered via the Novo App as you drive:
GPS location coordinates (latitude, longitude, altitude)
Mobile phone state to assess usage while driving
GPS Probe data including speed, heading, timestamp
User activity (Android only)
Motion and fitness (iOS only) Based on the collection of the above-listed information, Novo derives a risk variable for each of these categories:
Phone motion (including phone screen tapping)
Percentage of time spent on primary, secondary and tertiary roads.
What factors are used to measure my driving habits?
Why do you need my location?
We use your location to match your driving trips to maps for context and clarity. Driving 65 mph on the highway could be a safe speed and merit a reward or discount, while we do not want to reward those people driving 65 mph through their neighborhood.
What happens when I opt-in to Novo Drive
Yes, you can. The primary insured may opt out of the program anytime during the tenure of the policy.
How do I know how I am doing?
Look for regular messages within the app and also email updates showing your progress during the Novo Drive program. You can also log in to your app at any time to see how you're doing.
How does it work for multiple vehicles or drivers?
Each driver on the policy downloads the mobile app on their smartphone. If two drivers from the household are in a car together (for example, husband and wife), the mobile app should be able to determine who is the driver and only collect trip data for that person. However, in the instance that the phone app registers the trip for both individuals, we provide the opportunity, in the app, to correct the trip information.
Does the app have to always be running in the background?
Yes. As long as the app is installed on your phone and your phone is on during trips, it collects your driving data
What happens if my trip type is incorrect?
If you notice that we miscategorized a trip, you have an opportunity in the app to correct it.
