The firstcarquote Personality Quiz
firstcarquote has developed a personality quiz to help assess risk for new drivers because there’s a lot of scientific research that proves a link between an individual’s personality and their driving behaviour.
Why are we measuring these traits?
There’s a growing body of scientific evidence that has found that these personality traits can be linked to driving risks, such as risky driving behaviour, driving style, traffic violations and crash risks.
How does it work?
The personality quiz is offered as an optional extra to firstcarquote.com customers who have completed a normal quote and are interested in the chance to lower their quote. Everyone that takes this optional quiz will be given a discount. The discount ranges from 10% - 1%, based on the individual’s results. It is important to know that no one’s price will go up as a result of taking this quiz.
How you can get the double discount:
- Visit www.firstcarquote.com
- Complete a quote in around 60 seconds
- Receive a firstcarquote discounted price
- Complete an optional Personality quiz in a couple of minutes
- Receive a double discounted price

Is my data safe?

How do I qualify for a discount?
Currently everyone who buys insurance through firstcarquote will get a discount. To get the double discount, you have the option to take a personality quiz. The personality quiz helps to assess risk for new drivers. There’s a lot of scientific research that proves a link between an individual’s personality and their driving behaviour.
How can I get my profile featured on firstcarquote?
We accept applications from all existing firstcarquote customers. Once you've purchased your policy, we will be in touch to explain how you can join.
Can Facebook see my insurance details?
No, your insurance details are private and not accessible via Facebook.
Will I always receive a cheaper price on firstcarquote?
We are focused on delivering a competitive price for young drivers. More experienced drivers can still use the product, however for some the price might not be as competitive. There could be a number of reasons for this, for example:
- We recognize a maximum number of years license held and No Claims Bonus on firstcarquote. More experienced drivers may find that the additional years of license and NCB reduce their price more than the firstcarquote discount does.
- We recognise that some drivers may want to add additional drivers . If you share your car with a partner or spouse, this may reduce your quoted price under certain conditions.
In some cases, even for younger drivers, seemingly small variations in the quote information may indicate differences in the risk profile, which could lead to very different prices. Why not call us at 0330 134 3290, our friendly sales representatives will review your quote with you and see if there’s anything you missed which may have reduced your price.
I encountered a problem with the app, who should I contact?
We are sorry that firstcarquote did not work as expected for you. This is a continuously improving product, and we encourage customers to contact us with any issues they encounter, in order to help us learn and improve. Please drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will respond as soon as possible.
I have an idea for an improvement, can I tell you about it?
Sure! We love hearing from our customers! Drop us an email, or message us on Facebook (just visit our Facebook page here) and tell us what you’re thinking!
I heard that if I gave you permission your algorithm could scan my Posts and Page Likes to assess whether I’ll be a safe driver, and give me a larger discount based on that analysis
A previous version of firstcarquote allowed you to share additional data with us. However, the current version of the product does not have this feature. We do not have access to customers’ Facebook data, and never had access to anything that customers didn’t voluntarily share with us. Social data was only ever a part of the product, and we are still committed to the basic concept of firstcarquote: fast, fun, informative insurance quotes for young drivers.
