What is Freeedrive?
Freeedrive is the fleet safety solution, aiming to prevent the use of smartphones behind the wheel. On the one hand, the use of disruptive phone applications is discouraged. On the other hand, the safety score provides the driver and the fleet manager with an overview of fleet safety.
When will I be able to subscribe to Freeedrive?
Freeedrive has been distributed through fleet managers and insurance companies in trial since June 2016. From 2017 onwards you can ask your fleet manager if you are able to use Freeedrive for driving safely.

Freeedrive only activates when you are driving in your car, not in somebody else's. If you however are a passenger in your car, Freeedrive will activate.
