Motorcycle insurance advice: Short term insurance for new riders

Published: 05 September 2009

Even though short-term motorcycle insurance has come on to the market with new policies from, that are designed to give you the chance to hire bikes, get test rides or just borrow your mate’s machine for a few weeks, new riders are still going to struggle to get cover for test rides.

“Our policies are new to the market, and because insurance companies use riding experience as one of the key indicators of risk they don’t have enough data to cover newer riders. At the moment our limit is three years experience.

But we’re hoping to bring that down in the next year or two.” Said Steve Coppuck of day Insure.
