Are you a runner? Do you head to the gym every morning? Well, there’s a new fitness program in town, and instead of improving your physical health, you’ll work to improve your driving health.
The new Mentor for Families by eDriving app acts as a personal driving coach to help drivers improve their driving behavior by reducing aggressive driving, distracted driving, and more.
How does Mentor work?
To help develop good driving habits, Mentor relies on best practices drawn from the most effective models in weight-loss, fitness, and behavioral change programs. Mentor combines these models with the research-backed driver improvement approaches eDriving has developed and proven through Fortune 150 clients worldwide over two decades.
To make driving improvement simple, Mentor collects driver data for each trip and over time to build an overall FICO® Safe Driving Score. This allows you to track progress and set goals. Mentor helps increase the FICO® score by providing customized “playlists” of interactive training interventions, tips, reminders and progress reports based on which habits your teen needs to improve.
The Mentor for Families app downloads onto any smartphone, tablet, or computer and tracks and rates your driving habits based on six risky behaviors, including:
- Distracted driving
- Rapid acceleration
- Phone usage
The idea is to track the behaviors around driving, which extend beyond skills and knowledge of the road, to build and reinforce good habits. It’s like having your own personal driving coach!
Proof of better driving
Mentor offers you the ability to see immediate results after using the app, as your score is adjusted after every trip you make. Are you more of the competitive type? Improving your FICO® score might also provide a few bragging rights among your friends. Who has the highest score?
Small investment, safe rewards
Improving your driving skills is good all around, ranging from reduced risk of accidents to getting more driving privileges. Remember, 94% of road incidents are caused by driver decisions and attitudes behind the wheel. Don’t fall into that trap; be confident in your safe driving behavior with Mentor right by your side.
