Drive your Buick
We use your iPhone or Android to measure your driving behavior during the Root test drive. Better driving = more savings.
Choose a recommended plan for your Buick or explore your coverage options to create your own. Then pay for your personalized policy—all in the app.
Skip the test drive
If you own a 2015 or newer Buick, the technology in your car already measures how safely you drive. That means that so long as your car has collected enough driving data, you could get a quote in the app without taking the Root test drive. Here’s how it works:
1. Download the app
You may not need to take the test drive, but you do need to download the Root app to get your quote.
2. Enter your car and driver information
By entering your VIN and a few other details in the app, we can tell if your car has the necessary technology to measure safe driving behavior.
3. Follow the prompts in the app
Allow the Root app to download the data already collected by your car. Don’t worry, if you bought your vehicle used, we’ll only measure data from the point you purchased it.
4. Review your quote and select coverage
If we can offer you a quote, you’ll find out immediately. Then, you can customize your policy right in the app.

How does Root car insurance work?
The Root app uses technology in smartphones to measure driving behavior—such as braking, speed of turns, driving times, and route consistency—and determines who is a safe driver and who isn’t. By only insuring safe drivers, Root can offer more affordable rates. And the entire Root experience is simple and easy.
You can do everything in the app—customize and purchase your policy, find your insurance card, make changes to your policy, and file a claim. We can even request cancelation of your old insurance policy for you.
What is the test drive?
The test drive is how we determine your good driving habits. We then use that information to help calculate your rate. Here’s how it works:
Sign up in less than a minute
Drive as you normally would-keep your phone with you when you do
We'll use driving data from your phone to measure your driving behaviors. It takes about 3 weeks.
If you qualify, you'll get a quote based primarily on your good driving. The better you drive, the more you could save.
Can I add other people to my policy?
Yes, you can add other people to your policy as long as they live at the same address. In fact, we encourage it.
Here’s how you invite others to the test drive:
When you create your profile, you will have the option to add more drivers.
Add the drivers’ information (scan their license or add manually) and tap Continue.
After you complete your profile, you will be taken to the invite screen. Tap Invite next to each new driver’s name.
The other drivers will receive a text message with a link to download the Root app (they have to use this link to be included on your policy).
Each driver will create an account (attached to yours) with their own email address, and will start their test drive.
Did you forget to add someone when you created your profile? No worries—you can invite drivers to the test drive at any point before your test drive is complete. Here’s what you do:
Open the app.
Tap the menu in the top left corner.
Select Auto Policy.
Tap Profile info.
Select Add new driver.
When everyone on the account finishes their test drives, you’ll get your quote. You can always add more drivers after you have a policy, but they won’t take the test drive, and of course their addition will increase your price.
What will my policy cover?
Your Root Insurance quote will likely offer you the same coverages provided by your previous insurance company—from there, you can customize your quote to include any additional coverages you need.
Do you offer Roadside Assistance?
We not only offer it, we include Roadside Assistance with every Root policy. Simply make a request through the app. Any service less than $100 is covered for vehicles on your policy, up to three incidents per 6-month policy term.
Roadside Assistance is purchased separately in California.
