DriveShield Plus is a motor insurance plan underwritten by MSIG that rewards safe drivers by charging premiums based on the driver’s driving style and habits. A telematics device will be installed in the car to record the driver’s driving data.
The driver can easily access his/her driving data via the MSIG Connected Car mobile app in his smart phone or on MSIG Connected Car Portal
Your first year premium is based on MSIG's standard motor premium taking into account your current No Claim Discount (NCD) entitlement.
Your drive score category will be taken into consideration when computing your renewal premium (second year onwards).
The installation can only be done at MSIG’s designated VICOM workshops. Details of the workshops can be found in the DriveShield Plus Infopack that you will receive together with your policy documents, within 7 working days after purchase.

The device records your driving data on a per trip basis. Trip data is recorded from the time you start your car, until the engine is switched off. During the trip, the following data is collected:
Driving data collected will be used to compute your drive score to determine if any excess waiver applies in the event of claims. Your drive score will form the basis for your renewal premium. Safe drivers with good drive scores can enjoy favourable renewal premiums.
The drive score is determined by a defined scoring model which takes into account events such as excessive acceleration, harsh cornering and harsh braking.
You can view the “Driver Feedback” function in the MSIG Connected Car Portal or mobile app. It provides an analysis of your driving behaviour as well as tips on how to improve your drive score.
Yes, the location data is captured and transmitted to MSIG’s appointed telematics provider. You can use functions like “Location” to see the actual location of your car. MSIG will not have access to this data.
You can view your trip history and drive score via the mobile app and web portal within 2 working days from the device installation and after the policy commencement date. If you install the device ahead of the policy commencement, no trip history will be recorded during this period.
The telematics device is installed in the vehicle to track the driving style and behaviour of drivers using the vehicle. If the vehicle is shared with another authorised driver, the scoring and feedback will be based on the drive trips and driving behaviour of the drivers.

There are 4 Drive Score Categories and the Effective Standard Excess is derived from the respective Drive Score Category. Policyholders in the Green and Yellow drive score categories will enjoy a waiver of Excess as below:
Samantha’s 24 year-old son just got his driver’s license. He drives her car and gets into an accident. In addition to Samantha’s Standard Excess of $500, the Young and/or Inexperienced driver excess of $3,000 applies as the car was driven by her son. (A young and/or Inexperienced driver refers to a driver aged below 27 years old and/or has held a valid driving license of less than 2 years.)
If Samantha’s last 30 days Drive Score was in the green category.
Her total Standard Excess is $3,500. In this scenario, not only will she enjoy the 100% waiver of her Standard Excess, the Young and/or Inexperienced driver excess of $3,000 for her son, will also be waived in full.
If Samantha’s last 30 days Drive Score was in the red category.
Her total Standard Excess is $3,500. As her drive score is in the red category, there is no waiver of Excess.
Steven is 26 years old and has been driving for less than two years. His Standard Excess is $3,000.
If Steven’s last 30 days Drive Score was in the green category.
His Effective Standard Excess is $0, as he will enjoy 100% waiver of Excess.
