Short term insurance

So the recent bad weather has prevented me from passing my full bike test before my 125 insurance runs out, and I'm looking for 3 months more insurance, but my current insurer wants to charge me for the entire year then only refund me 6 months plus a admin fee for cancelling the policy after 3 months.

So I've looked around for short term bike insurance and I can't find anyone who wouldn't charge me a reasonable fee for 3 months insurance.

The reason I want 3 months is because I work varying hours and only get my next weeks hours the monday before, so fitting in training and testing isn't easy.

Anyone able to help?

EDIT: Oh and I'm 19 so a couple of short term insurers won't insure me just because of my age.

Short Term

Isn't really needed, unless of course you're intending to stop riding in three months time? Just renew/begin a policy & amend it when you get the next bike to fit with your requirements

Only problem with that is my current insurer won't insure my next bike as its an import and 33bhp restricted :/

Shop around

if one insurer won't do it, another will, although it may be at a price; imports tend to be more expensive (due to potential difficulties in sourcing parts). If you haven't tried them yet, try Aviva; I'm with them and (touch wood) have never had a problem. If you go to an insurer as a new customer, you sometimes get better deals anyway, so maybe worth moving your policy in its entirety rather than after x number of months.
