Why do I need Scooter Insurance?
Motorbike Insurance offers riders cover that echoes the lower costs and reduced risks that come with owning a scooter. Often more practical than owning a considerably larger vehicle, like a sports motorbike, especially when it comes to manoeuvring around busy city centres, scooters offer motorists a sensible and cost effective alternative for short commutes or quick visits to the shops:
With the level of freedom they provide to younger riders, not having to wait that extra year to take their driving licence, or having to rely on the night bus to get home, or worse, needing to get a lift from mum and dad, scooters are ever popular with youngsters.
Likewise, speed limiters on modern scooters mean most vehicles won’t go over 30mph. The savings that can be made with the amazing fuel economy mean scooters are popular with parents alike; knowing their children will be riding safely and cheaply.
For the more experienced rider having a smaller vehicle to make the shorter trips can prove to be a great money saver.
With a number of similar vehicles on the market, the UK definition of a scooter is a light motorcycle with small wheels, with an engine size of 49cc or above, and a step through frame that is usually combined with rear mounted engine. These smaller sized vehicles, with their reduced risks and lower costs, means once a young motorist passes their CBT test and gets their ‘L’ plates, they can take the next step of applying to get insurance and get their scooter on the road.
As it is mandatory in the UK for all vehicles to be insured it is therefore a legal requirement for your scooter to be insured. Regardless of whether you only use your scooter during the summer holidays or have it stored somewhere for the winter, it has to be insured. Exceptions are only given to vehicles with a SORN (Statutory Off Road Notice) sent to them by the DVLA. With the government cracking down on motorists with new Continuous Insurance Enforcement (CIE) regulations, motorists without insurance can find themselves with a £1,000 fine, possible court prosecution or your scooter being seized and destroyed.
