Key:
RED - High insurance risk
A 25-year-old student living in rented accommodation in central London who’s been riding for less than two years. He covers 8000 miles each year, is yet to build up any no claims bonus, and already has a speeding conviction.
AMBER - Average insurance risk
35 years old, living in suburbia, covering 10,000 miles a year on a bike, this rider has built up three years’ no claims bonus, is an accountant, yet doesn’t own his house and keeps his bike on the driveway.
GREEN - Low insurance risk
This rider is 50, lives in a rural area, has no additional riders on his policy, and an annual mileage of 2000. With five year’s NCB, his own house and an Institute of Advanced Motorists test pass under his belt (as well as a garage), he’s a very attractive proposition.
