frame number

Hello, I'm trying to add a second motorbike to my policy. Hastings keep giving dates for the start of multibike cover and keep failing and giving new dates. My second bike has now been sat in the garage with no cover for a month now. To make matters worse, today apart from giving a new date for possible start in 2 weeks, my new bike is currently not road registered and to get it registered i need an insurance cert. Hastings tell me today that they will not issue cover on the frame number even temporarily. I shall now have to start new cover elsewhere with no no-claims.
Are there any decent companies that will issue cover on the frame number as the DVLA want to see one before they give me a reg no. The bike is Husqvarna WR250 enduro bike. Daytime MOT is all OK, have age cert, MSVA or Cert of Conformity N/A.

Thanks, Mark Sheppard.

Why do you need insurance to get it registered?

sounds like you've got most of the info/paperwork the DVLA need, maybe a receipt of purchase would help, maybe the DVLA got their wires crossed or is this a new requirement?

Have you spoken to Husky Sport or whoever is the importer these days? or indeed any of the off road/enduro bike specialists.

Have a look in Trials and motocross news for more contacts and also specialist off road insurers who will already be familiar with the ins and outs of registering and insuring off roaders. (there was an arrangement to issue Q plate reg to off roaders purely for the purposes of traceability if they were stolen, rather than use on the road, but of course many trials and enduro bikes need reg and insurance and mot to compete as roads may be used between sections) Hope this is of some help, the DVLA lately seem to be very guilty of making things up as they go along and losing stuff! :shock:

insurance

They seem to need the insurance certificate as they insist on supplying the road fund license there and then and this process needs evidence of insurance. It is likely that I could immediately SORN the bike without insurance, but my intension is to do a few miles on the road / green lanes etc.

Thanks

Typical bureaucratic nightmare isn't it?

if it was an import with a foreign reg they prob could have done it no problem, unless the DVLA will let you declare SORN immediately from registration, it looks like you'll have to go with a different insurer such as those I mentioned above, alternatively you may need to seek advice from elsewhere, there was a chap used to advertise in the kit car magazines about sorting paperwork out for those folks, as they have to jump through a few hoops to get their vehicles on the road.

I got a feeling you could just be banging your hed on the wall with DVLA and Hastings unfortunately, it's just something they are not set up to deal with. The brokers more used to dealing with classics etc. like Carole Nash and Adrian Flux may be a better bet.

Good luck :smile

frame no. insurance

After a mornings work, I have had success with Just Motorcycle Insurance who have sorted a frame number policy with Aviva. Fully comp with no no-claims for £120.

Should have been a fraction of that when added to the ZX12R policy (with the no-claims) if Hastings were any good. Luck I'm the cheap side of 40 I suppose.

Quite simple in the end, I just had to call the right number.

Cheers.
