A personalized quote for you, right in the Root app

It’s insurance, made simple.

Three Root insurance app screens

Here’s how this works

Start your test drive today. Our safest drivers will get up to 44%* off their initial quote.

Get the app

Download the app and follow our easy prompts to get started.

Drive for a few weeks

Show off your safe driving and check your progress in the app.

Save based on your driving

After a few weeks, we'll give you a quote based primarily on your safe driving.

*Savings compared to Root rate without completion of test drive. These are that maximum possible savings by our best drivers, but actual savings will vary by your driving score and state of purchase.

Still have questions?

What if I’m a bad driver?

Root isn’t the right fit for everyone. Our models don’t work with every situation, so we may not offer you a quote after the test drive. That just means you could save more with another carrier, and we don’t want to stand in the way of your saving money.

Does the Root app need to be open for trip tracking to work?

The Root app does not need to be open. You actually give it permissions to run in the background on your phone when you set up the test drive.

I drive for a living. Will that affect my test drive?

Currently, every trip you take during the test drive will count toward your quote, regardless of why you’re driving. For people who drive for work, like EMTs, police officers, mail delivery personnel, and truck drivers, this means the trips you take for work will be used in addition to your personal driving to calculate your rate. 

But, we encourage you to take the test drive anyway. Good drivers are often surprised at how low their quote is—even with their work trips. We can also let you know if your work driving has impacted your score (just message us at help@joinroot.com).

Won’t the test drive drain my battery?

We do our best to make sure that our test drive is as battery friendly as possible—many customers report no change or very little change. The good news? Any short-term inconvenience can lead to big savings.
