Exceed The Speed Limit

All speeding will negatively impact your driving score and may cause additional premiums. 

If you exceed the speed limit by more than 30% our system will register an Extreme Speeding Event, and you will be notified of this by email.

We reserve the right to cancel your policy in the event of one or more Extreme Speeding Event.

How does the app know if there are variable speed limits or there are temporary speed limits?

Although we keep our speed limit database as up to date as possible, we don’t always know about temporary reductions in speed limits due to variable speed limits and road works. We use the maximum speed limit for those roads. However, we know safe drivers don’t suddenly become unsafe drivers. Safe drivers observe temporary speed limits and take into account the driving conditions at the time.

What to do in the event of speeding

We’ve got a database of all the speed limits and we continually maintain where possible to keep as up to date as we can. However, the speed limit may have changed without our knowledge. If you have noticed that a speed limit is showing incorrectly on the WiseDriving Box, we would appreciate your feedback.

Please email us by visiting our contact us page with the specific details (the time and date of the journey) and we’ll investigate. If our database is incorrect, we’ll correct it. If this has affected your driving score, we’ll remove any affected journeys.
