Is black box insurance for me?
LittleBox is great for lots of people, and if you’re facing high insurance prices you could get a discount by having one of our clever little boxes active in your car.
The technology in our box looks at how you drive – if you drive safely, you could be rewarded with a lower price. But if you do lots of journeys throughout the day or you regularly drive at night, LittleBox may not work for you.

Isn't it like having 'Big Brother' in my car?
Although LittleBox collects location information, it's not sent through to us in real time - we really don't mind how often you drive to your local takeaway!
And great news – if LittleBox is active and your car’s stolen, we’ll be able to help track its location.
What kind of information does black box collect?
The technology and data from Telematics insurance is used to help drivers get a fair price for their car insurance – not to try and catch them out.
LittleBox collects information about how and when you drive, along with other risk factors to calculate your driving score.
We use that information to work out what kind of driver you are, and ultimately, how safe you are behind the wheel.
Don't worry, we only share the information with the data companies who provide the services, like the LittleBox provider - your information won't be sold or shared with anyone else.
If you’re a good driver, the information collected by the box can help you get a lower insurance price at renewal. On the other hand, consistently bad drivers may find their price increases and the very worst drivers risk their cover being cancelled.

Your questions answered
We've answered the most commonly asked questions here.
Can I remove LittleBox?
No, once you take out the policy and black box has been installed, it stays in the car for the duration of your policy.
Do I own LittleBox once it's installed?
No, Admiral owns LittleBox.
What happens if I change my car?
The LittleBox in your old car will be remotely de-activated and we'll arrange installation of a new LittleBox in your new car (charges apply).
Can LittleBox be fitted to all cars?
We can fit LittleBox in all cars made after 2002.
How do I log in to my driving Dashboard?
You can log in to your driving Dashboard by clicking the Existing Customers tab at the top of the Admiral Website. Log in to your Documents portal and you'll find your link to the LittleBox Dashboard.
Why is my driver score showing as 'null' on my Driving Dashboard?
When your car's not being used a score of 'null' will show.
When will my driving statistics appear on my Driving Dashboard?
Your statistics will show up after 1-2 months. This is so we can collect enough information to build your driving score.
When I try to log into the Driving Dashboard, it's advising me to check back next week. What's happening?
We're currently collecting and processing the information - the system needs to compile driving information before it can calculate your score so check back in a few days.
Who do I contact to re-arrange my installation date?
No problem! We'll give you the installation team's number when you take out your cover and you can call them to re-arrange.
Why is my score from last week showing as this week's score on my Driving Dashboard?
The trip information from this week hasn't updated yet so check back in a few days.
What happens if I forget my password to my personal dashboard?
Just click on the 'reset password' link and follow the instructions.
Are there any curfews?
You can drive anytime you like with LittleBox, but regular night time driving (after 10pm) will decrease your driving score, meaning you may not get as big a discount at renewal. So, if you have a night job that requires driving, this may not be the best option for you.
Will I have to pay anything if I don't renew my policy at the end of the first year?
No. If you don't renew your policy there will be no extra charges. You'll only have to pay the cancellation fee if the policy is cancelled before renewal.
Where is the box fitted and will it damage my car?
LittleBox hard install device is fitted at no extra cost to you, out of sight behind your dashboard. It's fitted by a trained technician and won't affect the vehicle's warranty.
You'll be contacted by our installation team to book an appointment with the engineer. They come out to you and the fitting only takes around 40 minutes.
If you have a LittleBox plug and drive device, this just needs to be plugged into the 12V power supply or cigarette lighter – this is something you can do at home.
