Lightfoot helps you save money on fuel, reduce harmful emissions, and stay safe every time you drive

Lightfoot connects to your vehicle’s computer. It plugs into the OBDII port – every car and van made after 2005 has one.

The device itself sits on your dashboard and uses lights and optional audio to tell you how efficiently you’re driving.

If you are pushing your engine too far and driving inefficiently, you will see the lights go from green to red.

As Lightfoot is connected directly to your car’s computer, it adjusts its feedback according to live engine data. This means you get bespoke guidance for your vehicle, your driving style, and the roads you’re driving on.

The score

After every journey, you get a score that reflects how smoothly you have driven.

The goal is simple – aim for Elite Driver standard by keeping the lights green as often as possible.

Elite Driver standard is 85%

Nobody’s ever going to be 100% perfect, driving just isn’t like that. That’s why we set our Elite Driver standard at 85%.

This allows plenty of leeway for you to overtake other road users, quickly build speed on slip roads, and drive in other ways that are inefficient but necessary in everyday driving.

The app

The Lightfoot app is your go-to place for all things smooth driving.

You can check your score, join leagues, view competitions and rewards, and edit your account and Lightfoot settings.

Lightfoot app

The Lightfoot app also lets you categorise journeys as business or private use, making it easy to separate journeys if you need to make mileage claims. It’s as simple as pressing a button.

FAQs

Yes – if your car was made after 2004. This is when OBDII ports became mandatory in both diesels and petrol vehicles sold within the European Union. Cars made before this year may have an OBDII port, but it is not guaranteed.
Lightfoot works as standard in hybrid vehicles. Currently, Lightfoot does not work in electric vehicles, however we are working on EV integration and hope to have an update on this soon.
Lightfoot comes with an easy three-step installation guide. If you do not want to install Lightfoot yourself, selected Halfords stores will fit your Lightfoot device for £30.
Our small monthly subscription fee covers the cost of running and updating your device, as well as providing the Lightfoot Rewards platform. The subscription is not mandatory; however, you will lose access to the Lightfoot app and automatic software updates.
Nope. Lightfoot is effectively a helpful friend in-cab, but you are and will always remain in control of the vehicle. If you need to drive inefficiently (e.g. to join fast-moving traffic), Lightfoot can’t and won’t stop you. Think of it like a Sat Nav – you might follow the route it suggests but if it tries to take you down a closed road, it’s still your responsibility not to go driving through the cones!
