FICO® Safe Driving Score

Overview

Much as the FICO® Score is the standard measure of consumer credit risk throughout the financial ecosystem, the FICO® Safe Driving Score provides a consistent and objective measure of driver risk and safety based on driving behaviors. Core to FICO's telematics analytic suite, the FICO® Safe Driving Score model provides broad and measurable benefits for fleet drivers, safety managers, novice drivers and drivers requiring remediation. The goal is to foster safer drivers, safer roads and reduce risk and costs for all.

Safety in Numbers

Fleet safety managers can more effectively monitor individual driver performance and objectively assess the driver’s aptitude.   ‘High-risk’ drivers learn about their risk exposures and how those factors affect their safety.

Monitor and Motivate

Novice drivers can manage, control and mitigate their risk of accidents, and improve their driving and ultimately their safety. ‘Good’ drivers are empowered to maintain their low-risk profile.

Not hindsight, predict future risk

Telematics Service Providers through analytics can give consumers valuable insights into their driving behavior and will help people protect themselves, their passengers and their vehicles.

Key Features

  • Telematics, the sending and receiving of vehicle and driver interaction data, permits the observation and assessment of risky driving behaviors and fuels the FICO® Safe Driving Score,
  • A robust algorithm that scores a driver based on their driving performance across acceleration, braking, cornering, speed, distraction, and other behind-the-wheel conduct captured over the duration of a trip and over subsequent trips.
  • Researching and evaluating the use of telematics data for several years,  FICO analyzed data covering multiple countries, millions of road miles, and millions of trips.
  • As with all FICO® Score products, there is a significant level of transparency and insight that is shared with opt-in drivers and their management. Fleet safety performance can be benchmarked and reported by company, division, or team.
  • Sensitive to data privacy concerns, the program is only used with the express consent of the driver. The variables used in the model are behaviors that can be controlled and changed by the individual.
  • This capability, of assessing and scoring safety risk, can feed into driver education training and safe driving programs, as well act as a valuable tool for commercial insurers to help control losses through proactive safety initiatives.
