Safety first 5/5
By Erin Westbrook
I love this app it’s helped me remember all the rules and safety tips of driving that I haven’t looked at since high school!
This app is buffoonery. Just give me my discount already.
This app is a very poor judge of driving skills. Even when I went very slow and careful it still docked me... and the trouble was it doesn’t tell you what for sometimes. If I have a 93% I want to know what I did wrong. It’s basically impossible to get a 100%!
A Big Hassle 1/5
The fact that it doesn’t have an automatic way to record trips through GPS feels very outdated. It’s a hassle, and makes progress extremely slow. If I’m trying to get to work on time, I don’t necessarily have time to start a trip, especially when it refuses to calibrate.
The videos barely line up with the questions and the information is incorrect about where to put your hands on the steering wheel. You physically can not put your hands at 9” and 3” due to the shape of the steering wheel.
Great for new drivers learning how to drive.
Percentage score given for driving 3/5
As the mentor of a student driver, I do not Think that your overall percentage scores and even your individual scores for particular skills is accurate. I am very particular in the way that my son drives, been a very safe driver myself, I think an app on a phone cannotSee what a driver has to deal with. As such, sometimes when they have to accelerate faster than your app thinks they should or taking a curve has had to avoid something they get scored lower.
State Farm Review. 5/5
It was good to review good driving habits. I learned a few things I never really had thought of about rural driving AND if I am involved in an accident.
Didn’t work 1/5
By Vary Vary Bad
I’ve now driven multiple hours worth since getting this app. However on multiple occasions it hasn’t recorded my driving despite the fact that I have made sure that it was fully on and calibrated before I left. I’ve sent emails using the links on the app asking for help or giving feedback but it appears to do nothing.
Steer clear Don’t turn too sharply on the straightaways!!! 2/5
By annoyed perfectionist
While my daughter was driving along a straightaway, steer clear dinged her about 8 times in about 4 miles! I was with her and it was one of the smoothest rides I’ve been on with her... it was a horribly bogus score.
Her next two drives she lost points for braking and acceleration- my opinion was that she drove perfectly fine on both trips. Took away points but had “No incidents “ to report... this app will be dropped once her drivers license is obtained and we get a discount for her.
Waste of time 1/5
Completely inaccurate-has no idea of type of roadway or driving conditions at all - impossible to fairly assess and accurately give properly earned credit to person participating. It’s utterly ridiculous and nonsensical and useless in the info it gives. Doesn’t truly reflect anything positive or negative-
Safe Driver App 4/5
The app is great. Really easy to use. One complaint is I think it is a little too sensitive. When merging from road to highway via the ramp it says I accelerate too fast. Slowed down to where it wanted me and I was merging on at 40mph when the speed limit is 70. That and the breaking seems sensitive unless you start stopping a mile back from the sign or light.
Really? This is what you think will help us drive better? 1/5
By a teen driver
This app is honestly dumb. The only good part of it is cheaper insurance, since I’m 16 and have to pay it myself. The app questions are honestly stupid... I get it you want teen drivers to know laws but it’s not like we all were in drivers ed for 2 months and took multiple tests for this.
Also, you get graded for how you drive. How do they know? I’ve heard a lot of complaints saying they drive good but they only get a c or a.
This app honestly is stupid and just a way to get people to switch to State Farm insurance.
By Lissa Stocks
The scores I receive are frustrating. I have become very conscious about my driving and I don’t speed, turn too sharply, brake to hard; yet the highest score I have gotten is an 89%. In school, I enjoy 100%, and an 89% is not so pretty.
I give it 2-star rating due to its quick lessons, the idea it makes me more aware, and it’s helping with my insurance. But really, it’s a pain. The scoring system is too picky, and some of my trips were not calculated —-which I understand that is due to my movement of my phone. But still, the scoring system needs to be reworked.
Great review for ANY driver 5/5
Now that I’ve been driving for a few years, most of this was common sense but this is still a great review for ANY driver. This would have been most helpful to use when I first started driving though
Won’t record most trips 2/5
The app shuts off more than half the time and doesn’t record trips. Super frustrating. To get the required 5 hrs of driving will take more than 10hrs.
I hate this app it is not accurate when scoring my driving on any level this app is awful
Awesome App for New Drivers! 5/5
This app is very helpful with it’s handy tips and information! It was also a refresh from driver’s ed with a few more additional driver tips! Lastly, the videos and quizzes were beneficial!
Driving Time Limits 3/5
The app itself is great and easy to use. The modules are short, the animation is cute, and the questions are fairly easy. The problem I have with this app is that I realized the Take a Drive mode has a time limit cap of 30 minutes, which would’ve been great to know if I didn’t drive an hour and twelve minutes.
NOT ACCURATE!!!!🚨 2/5
I’ve noticed while using this app it is NOT ACCURATE! The app may be helpful, but it would be nice if it was a little more accurate. For instance I was driving on the highway and I was going straight, nowhere near a turn and I got an alert that I did a bad job turning but there was no turn in sight!!!! Also there has been multiple times where I was not accelerating and the app has alerted me saying that I accelerated to fast.
Has truly helped on my payments! Such a great app.
Great app 5/5
Well worth the time to get the discount!
Inaccurate answers to questions...
Does not sync properly 1/5
This is a very difficult app to use. You can not touch the phone to check to see how long you have been driving. Also, the data isn’t syncing between the iPad and iPhone. The modules are showing up for n the iPad but not the iPhone. All 10 drives are showing up on the iPhone but only 8 of the 10 drives are showing up on the iPad. I called the help desk and they had no answer but to retake the modules on the iPhone. Not happy.
Great teacher 5/5
For me it served as an adjustment to my driving and it worked out great
By Cantaloupe God
I found myself worrying more about appeasing the app rather than focusing on driving safely. I got tailgated on multiple occasions and got passed at least five times per trip. Other cars would drive aggressively to get around me. My life is almost not worth the discount. Worst 5+ hours of my life.
By Mark sooty99
Not realistic. It deducts for getting onto a freeway (acceleration) and for exiting a freeway ( Braking). A 90 year old man driving to their mailbox could not score 100. I had several
Very good trips where I thought I had scored well only to see a 60 at the end of the trip. Very frustrating!
Stupid app with inaccurate scoring.
Fails to record MOST trips 1/5
We have been fighting with this app for several months now. While my daughter completed the videos quickly after we switched to SF and she drives daily, she still only has 7 trips logged (she’s probably driven close to 75 trips now). This is very frustrating because month after month, she’s having to pay the higher rate (she’s responsible for her own insurance costs) and that’s a ton of money for a 16-yr-old! I wish there were an alternative to having to use this app!
It’s okay 2/5
It’s nice to get the discount but is very annoying at the same time. I get points taken away for ALREADY going under the speed limit during turns. The app claims I was going to fast around turns and curves but if I went slower it would be a hazard. Also one other thing I strongly dislike is that is took points off for me breaking too hard. When I looked back at it, I pulled over for an emergency vehicle to pass. I wish there was a way to justify this so I don’t look like a bad driver.
Past hours 4/5
I love the app! The only issue is that I can’t log my past hours from before I got the app. I have over 25 hours but I can’t log them, it upset me. If I could log past hours I would give 5 stars.
It’s a nice app but it seems really unfair and inaccurate. My car is really bumpy and the app counts the bumps as a sharp turn. Even when reviewing my trip, you can see I got a “sharp turn” mark down while I was going straight.
Hillbilly Accomadation 3/5
This app doesn’t take into consideration that I live in the middle of cousin-loving nowhere and all the turns are sharp because that’s how the road is built. Other than that, it’s great!
It was boring and I hated it 1/5
By Fjfjsjavebe dhodhdn d Ed
Grrrr I’m so angery
easy to use.. very quick and pretty cool
Half the time it doesn’t record 1/5
By please record!!
I like the discount. However half the time I drive does not record. That is so disappointing and irritating!
Clear and informative application 5/5
By E Furr
This app is useful and has well thought out modules to help one brief up on driving responsibilities.
Really good and fun really like it
Good Refresher 4/5
The modules are pretty easy and user friendly.
The format is super appealing and easy to use.
My biggest complaint is logging the drive time. When I start my time, the app crashes. I don’t realize until after my drive. I was supposed to log 5 hours but really I used the app for 10.
Wish there would have been area to explain why example hard braking was used.
Not good 1/5
To get higher scores, you had to drive in an unrealistic manner.
By pita. pee
Spend too much time updating crap.
How do you know when you completed the course and able to send to State Farm? 5/5
Just confused on how to know when you completed course to send to State Farm.
Easy to use app 5/5
Steer Clear is great! 5/5
I’m a better driver because of it!
Keeps shutting off halfway through my drives 4/5
I drive an hour to work everyday and every time I activate the steerclear, 30 minutes into my drive it shuts off due to “movement” even though i never touch my phone, the sensitivity and programming needs to be fixed.
This was horrible! Who would teach our youth to mess with there phone before every time you drive!
This is terrible and a waste of time 1/5
All of this is already taught in drivers ed as well as the drives, if they wanted drives done they need to take the papers from the school to get feed back. This is also stupid because the mod-lures are common since. I do not recommend for anyone
