How's your driving?

We’ve partnered with Optio, a free app that has a number of features to use from the day you start driving:

My Driving – your driving score and style and feedback on your trip details as well as the ability to playback a trip
My Footprint – feedback on your driving carbon footprint trip by trip
My Garage – add your vehicle registration and you can then manage MOT and servicing as well as being able to book with a local garage

DofE Drive FAQs

What is DofE Drive?

DofE Drive is a new car insurance service from the DofE which provides DofE participants with a discounted insurance quote because they are doing or have done their DofE. It is important to note we cannot guarantee this is the lowest price you could get with another insurer – but get a quote and compare it. 

How can the DofE get discounted car insurance for past and current participants? 

We recorded over one million miles of DofE participant driving data and compared it to driving data from comparable young people. The results showed that DofE participants are 42% lower risk. 

This means insurers want to talk to you. We have developed a partnership with Autosaint who are offering DofE participants a discounted car insurance quote as statistically they are safer drivers. 

How do I get a quote?

You can only get the discounted car insurance through the link at www.DofE.org/shopping/dofe-drive. 

You won’t find this on a comparison website or search engine.That means the savings normally paid to these websites can be passed onto you.  

It is important to note we cannot guarantee this is the lowest price you could get with another insurer – but get a quote and compare it.  

Does the DofE receive any money for DofE Drive? 

Yes. We have a deal with the insurance broker, Autosaint, who pay a commission to the DofE for every policy sold using the dedicated link on our website and emails.The majority of the discount is being used to reduce the original price of the policy. 

Who is the insurance broker for DofE Drive? 

We are using Autosaint as the insurance broker for DofE Drive. 

To access the discounts via DofE Drive participants / parents must go through the form on www.DofE.org/shopping/dofe-drive which will then re-direct to the Autosaint landing page to start the quotation process. 

Can I call Autosaint for a quote? 

Autosaint have a customer call number, however if you want the DofE Drive discount to apply you must go through the DofE webpage www.DofE.org/shopping/dofe-drive.

Do I need a device installed? 

Yes, there is a simple dashboard smartplug which can be installed by you with simple instructions. If it is not possible to fit a smartplug then an alternative device will be provided.

How much is the discount? 

We are not offering a specific percentage off the original quote price, as there are too many factors and variables involved in providing you with an insurance quote. What we can say is that, if you are a Silver or Gold participant/Award holder, the savings will be better than for Bronze participants. 

When you get a quote through Autosaintif you use the DofE Drive link www.DofE.org/shopping/dofe-drive, you will receive one quote which is the best quote provided from the insurance underwriters. 

Should I check around for the best price? 

Yes. We believe we will be able to offer either the best price or a highly competitive price, but we cannot guarantee this. So please get a quote and compare it. 

Do I have to be a current participant? 

No. As long as you have done your DofE, even if you did not complete your Award level, you can get a quote – but you must use the DofE Drive link www.DofE.org/shopping/dofe-drive to get a quote.
