    I have black box insurance with admiral, it was taken out 2 weeks ago, and the other day I accidentally got up to 70 in a 50 limit. I also have a habit of accelerating to the speed limit quite quickly. How much will this show on the policy, if I drive well for the remainder of the 3 months

    if you went over with it in it will depend on your policy.
    I had a black box in, with "bell" a partner of admiral. I already knew that speeding wasn't taken into account.
    there is a point near I lived, an uphill bit that was 30, but I regularly did 35 and I still got a good discount after the 3 months it was in for.

    This is why we tell people not to get black boxes :dontknow:

    We won't know what the outcome is, you'll have to wait and see. Please do pay more attention in future though.

    Indicated 35, probably an actual 32, taking account of tolerances for GPS, it's no wonder they didn't penalise you...

    How do you "accidentally" go 20mph over the speed limit? ...

    Chances are that your marks for speeding will drop the score down considerably, especially since 20mph over is considered excessive. Your policy is not the same one as mine, but the speed you were doing is enough to get you 3 points from the get go.

    The acceleration may also influence your score if the box checks for it. Just putting it out there, you are going to be lucky if you do not get an email to tell you your policy may be cancelled.

    You'll probably get a warning or a cancellation.

    This is totally spot on. I wouldnt touch one with a 10 foot barge pole. The things need burning. They are more trouble than they are worth.
