In the dashboard, (waze.com/dshboard) and on the scoreboard under 'My Waze' in the waze application, you can see your points and rank. You'll be able to follow your progress and driving activity inside Waze. Each field represents a different type of your activity inside Waze. Every night our system will calculate all the points that you accumulated in all the different fields through the day. The system will then allocate you in your new position inside the rank table. Your rank can change on a daily basis.

NOTE: occasionally our system has some delays with updating the points. If you think the points have not updated properly, it's worth checking our status page - status.waze.com - to make sure that there are no current issues with the points system.
