Short Term insurance

I am trying to sell my bike, as I am currently at university and there is no need for it. I am also getting hammered with depreciation, I was a bit of a tit and bought it new. But before I sell it, I would like to pass my motorbike test before the stupid new laws come in January. 

Is there anywhere on the internet that can insure me for a reasonable price for about a month. I think I tried 'ebike' but they quoted me £168 roughly for a month which I find ridiculous. 

I tried looking at a motorbike school, because then I could just sell the bike and use their bikes. But the motorcycle school where I live were not flexible, their starting price was about £500.

Any help is greatly appreciated thanks!

Short-term insurance

Why not talk to your current broker ./ underwriter?  They are in the best position to offer you something short-term and you already have a relationship with them.

I talked to a broker near where I am currently staying, he said that cannot offer temporary insurance. He did recommend a place down the road but I could not find it. I will try find it tomorrow. I have a problem with my current supplier, I made a mistake and now I owe them money the bunch of... 

I was just wondering if anyone knew of a website or something.
