Carrot partners with RoadHow to support learner drivers

Telematics provider Carrot Insurance has teamed up with RoadHow, an app-based, AI-powered driver coaching platform, to support the backlog of 420,000 learner drivers waiting to sit their test. Examinations resumed on 22nd April after being stopped due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Norrie Erwin, managing director of Carrot Insurance, said: “It has been a very tough ride for the COVID-19 generation of young people, and we are concerned that for many, not only has there been a big gap between taking their theory test and their practical test, but there’s also a high probability they’ve spent less time behind the wheel honing their roadcraft in the run-up to getting their pass certificate.”

He added: “Including the backlog, there will be as many as one million inexperienced drivers on British roads by the time we reach the end of 2021. We’re obviously excited that tests have resumed, freedom of movement is returning, and our business can kick on looking after our young driver customers, but accidents are something we all want to avoid.”

Adrian Ryan, CEO and founder of RoadHow, said: “We feel like we’re launching at exactly the right time, and making our app available to Carrot’s customers for free is something we’re delighted to do.

“In choosing telematics-based insurance, like Carrot, and self-selecting to use the RoadHow app, drivers can demonstrate that they are doing all they can to be as safe and responsible as possible, and in turn reduce accidents.”
