How To Improve Star Ratings

As speed is a leading risk factor, eliminating Overspeed Events should be your highest priority and will improve driver star ratings.

EROAD’s range of Driver Reports is designed to provide you with meaningful, actionable insights on driver performance. We recommend you share Leaderboard, individual Driver Insight and other reports with your drivers as part of an ongoing driver training and rewards program, enabling drivers to identify and focus on their individual areas of improvement.

Encourage great driving and turn it into a habit.

The NZI/Lumley Safe Driving Rewards Programme encourages and rewards safe driving. Find detailed information here.
