What is Nexar's Rideshare Protect Program?
This program is a Safe Driving package for professional drivers working within the NYC area (as well as other locations in the near future). For a monthly fee, drivers receive a discount on their TLC liability insurance. In addition, drivers receive a Nexar-ready dashcam, and the many practical benefits from the Nexar safety features, such as collision reports.

Do I need to use the Nexar App to get an insurance discount or can I just use the Dashcam?

How do I get my Insurance Eligibility Certificate?
Please follow these step by step instructions:
- Please go to the Nexar Cloud
- Click on "My Account"
- Click on discount eligibility certificate to download your discount certificate
Please note: Eligibility Certificates can only be generated once you become eligible.

How do I become ineligible for my Insurance discount?
- If you have not completed 3 drives over 5 miles in a full calendar month for two consecutive months your insurance company may remove your discount and charge you for the months you were ineligible for the discount.
- If your monthly payment for the Nexar subscription is past due.
- If your insurance information isn't accurate.
Can I go on vacation and still keep my discount?
- As mandated by your Insurance Provider, you are required to maintain 3 drives over 5 miles in a full calendar month with Nexar in order to maintain your discount. However, your insurance company allows you a one-month grace period. So, if you go one month not making your drives, you will not lose your insurance discount.
- Please note: If you go two months in a row not making your drives, regardless of the reason, your insurance discount will be removed.
I’ve lost the discount and my insurance company sent me a bill, what is going on?
Take note that Nexar is a Dashcam company. Not an Insurance company. Our part of this process is only to provide monitoring service of your drives should your insurance provider need it.It is at your insurance provider's discretion on how they would structure their fees.
If you lose your discount due to inactivity and have not maintained the required drives every month, your insurance company may remove your discount and charge you for the months you were no longer eligible. We advise that you consult this with your broker to get further details on the breakdown of the adjustments of your Insurance bill.
