This is a score based on each driver’s measured driving behaviors, including Harsh Acceleration, Braking, Cornering, Cellphone Distraction and Speeding. In addition to measuring risky behaviors, Mentor also gathers data on positive events such as Smooth Acceleration, Smooth Cornering, and Smooth Braking. These positive factors increase a driver’s score. This combination of positive and negative behaviors, along with the distance traveled are factored into the FICO® Safe Driving Score. ONLY DRIVER BEHAVIORS GATHERED FROM THE MENTOR APP ARE USED IN THE SCORE CALCULATION—NO CREDIT DATA IS USED IN COMPILING THE SCORE.
