NOTE: This FAQ pertains to the 1st & 2nd generation Automatic adapters only.

The drive score ranges from 1-100. Half the score’s points are allocated to speeding, and the other half are allocated to braking/accelerating.

That means the lowest score you can get by speeding alone is 50. Similarly, if you accelerate or brake hard a lot but never speed, you’ll never do worse than 50. Only by doing all three behaviors (a lot!) will your score go below 50.

The Drive Score starts at 100 every Monday morning and adjusts from there based on your driving relative to the three driving behaviors Automatic tracks. Each week is a fresh start for the weekly score.

The speeding, accelerating, and braking thresholds Automatic uses are the same for every car. Different cars have different optimum speeds, so it is possible for a driver to get great MPGs but a low drive score. Currently, driving over 70 MPH docks you points and driving over 75 and 80 MPH will impact your score even more.
