    This is the box three wires going to it so shouldn’t be too hard to disable if needed.

    Which would void a policy, and they tend to have internal batteries, fyi.

    I have a box with more than insurance and have found absolutely no problems. I sometimes work until 12pm and my drive home usage score is significantly low due to this. However, apart from that I have had no issue. I drive to the speed limit and am considerate in both braking and accelerating and this is clearly noticeable in my consistent scores of 10 each day. I am averaging at 8.5 for this quarter and am quoted to receive £21 back from the company as a result. Drive well and notice the rewards. I sometimes exceed the speed limit by 5mph and this does not effect my score- so those saying they have had insurance cancelled due to afew mph over the speed limit are incorrect (by my experience). The boxes are only fitted for a year and as frustrating as it sometimes is when you are late etc, it’ll be worth the 28% discount on my policy next year which is currently quoted due to my good driving scores. I reccomend the company as their insurance prices are reasonable and haven’t experienced issues regarding my black box.

    No I didn’t get paid to write that. I’ve genuinely had a really good experience with them since passing in December. They did wire my box wrong which meant it wasn’t working for 4 weeks but since they’ve been to fix the problem I can honestly say I haven’t experienced any issues.

    If you are looking for insurance that doesn't break the bank and black boxes are your only option then I highly recommend Hastings I've had no problems whatsoever for the past 4 years since I passed, the black box has no penalties or mileage limits, I was able to pretty much ignore it and have only checked it a handful of times since I've had it!

    You can also save money by having a parent with a good driving registered an additional driver on the car, provided they drive your car occasionally of course. :auto:

    I would advise not going with them at all, had my car insured with them just over a month and they are awful. Instant regret not spending an extra grand to get it without a box. I don't tend to speed and the box is ALWAYS inaccurate when it comes to smoothness, especially if you need to use the motorway. It's a joke, at first I read reviews and thought it was just bad drivers moaning, but after driving under 20 with my dad in the car the whole way and you get a -10 for speeding, something is definitely up and it makes you feel a lot worse about your own driving.You always feel more inclined to look at the speedometer rather than the road ahead, and you also get marked down for emergency breaking if someone (that you can do nothing about) pulls/walks in front of you. Would they rather you brake slowly and put the person over your bonnet?
