InGear Brain Training for New Drivers

InGear is an online training program designed to improve driving awareness and focus of new drivers between the ages of 15-19. The Auto Club works hard to provide resources and solutions necessary to help prepare your teen to be an improved driver. That’s why the Auto Club’s affiliate insurer has partnered with Posit Science®, the leading provider of brain fitness programs, to offer you InGear.

The three InGear computer exercises aim to:

  • Enhance visual skills
  • Improve attention and response time
  • Decrease distracted driving

This scientifically based brain fitness program aims to strengthen the cognitive skills essential for improved driving through multiple training sessions, which we hope will reduce the risk of a crash.

Your teen will need to complete three training exercises online (no download required). Here’s a brief overview of the exercises:

  • Andromedus X: Keep track of moving objects in the center of your vision while staying alert to potential hazards on the periphery
  • Hazard Highway: Make rapid decisions as an object approaches at various speeds, while staying alert to common road hazards
  • Hey Rube!: Rapidly move your eyes around a scene while challenging your visual memory

Eligibility and cost:

  • Insured members with teen drivers (ages 15-19) who are also insured through the Auto Club are eligible for InGear at no additional cost.
  • The average participant requires 8-10 hours to complete the program (in 20-minute sessions)
  • Participating teens will receive a $100 gift card1 upon successful completion of the InGear program

Enrollment process:
