FAQs
  1. This innovative program provides parents with an effective way to help their teens master safer driving habits that can last a lifetime. Our special app powered by TrueMotion effectively reduces distracted driving along with other risky behaviors that are common among teenagers. The app scores each ride and makes it clear where your teen can improve, while making it fun to challenge themselves to achieve higher scores. After your teen completes 3,000 miles or one year in the program, you’ll get a 10% discount* on your car insurance. Nice!
  2. Nothing. The Teen Safe Driver Program is completely free for American Family auto insurance customers. However, cell phone data charges may apply.
  3. Put simply, your rates won’t be affected.
  4. Once your teen reaches the goal of completing 3,000 miles or driving for one year in the Teen Safe Driver program, your discount of 10%* will be applied to your policy.
  5. Definitely! You’ll get a 10%* discount after your teen completes 3,000 miles or one year in the program, whichever comes first.
  6. In a word: "Automagically." You never need to start, stop, open, or close your app to accurately capture your driving. So just let it ride ...

    To be a bit more scientific, the app is "sleeping" in the background waiting for driving-like behavior (it does this to minimize data and battery consumption when you're not driving). When it sees movement that looks like driving (e.g. speed, location), the app begins recording. The data from each trip is processed so that we can show you things like the route you took, the distance and time you drove, and scores on things like Distracted Driving, High Speed, Hard Braking and Time of Day.

  7. The app is pretty smart! It uses cutting-edge technology that analyzes many aspects of your driving and behavior to identify whether you are a driver in a car, a passenger in a car, or traveling via some other mode of transit. On occasion, the app may misclassify a trip. When this happens, you can tap on the trip, and edit the mode by tapping the transit mode icon in the top right. This information helps the app better classify future trips.
  8. Data is stored in encrypted formats in TrueMotion’s data centers, so your privacy will be protected.
  9. You’ll need a smartphone that has an iOS (Apple) or Android operating system. Apple requirements: iOS 9.0 or later; Android requirements: Android 4.3 and up. On average, the app uses 60-70 megabytes of data per month, though this varies depending on the actual driving time. The app prefers to upload from Wi-Fi networks when possible, and will only upload via the cellular data when Wi-Fi is not available for an extended period after a trip finishes.
