Why do I need Moped Insurance?

RAC Motorbike Insurance provides riders with a policy that reflects the lower costs and lower risks associated with riding a modern moped. Low in road tax, mopeds are a cheap form of transportation when it comes to those quick drives to the shops or those short trips away.

As younger drivers, especially those who have recently passed their test, are the one group most likely to pay higher rates of insurance, mopeds are a very attractive option. The first step in getting a moped licence is getting a CBT test (compulsory basic training). Once passed, you’ll get a certificate of completion which allows you to ride your moped on the road (with L plates) for up to two years. It’s at this point that you’ll need to purchase your own insurance to take your moped out on the road. You must pass your full motorcycle test within two years or you’ll need to complete your CBT again.

Even though mopeds are mostly ridden by younger riders, with 16 year olds being old enough to ride them, most mopeds have speed limiters on them of around 28mph, this allows even the most inexperienced rider to get the cover they need. Further risks with younger riders are also eliminated with the average engine size of a moped being 50cc, meaning the inherent danger associated with riding a similar larger vehicle, such as a motorbike, is taken away. With your typical motorbike doing on average 80mpg, mopeds are also seen as being incredibly environmentally friendly, with a number of electric vehicles actually being categorised as mopeds due to their small engines.

Getting insured is a legal requirement and with the government cracking down on the high number of uninsured drivers it is vital you get your moped insured. Even if your moped is hardly used and is left in a garage most of the time, it has to be insured. Only if the vehicle is officially declared off the road with a SORN (Statutory off Road Notice) from the DLVA is an exception made. Failure to comply with these regulations can result in a fine, possible prosecution and your moped being seized or even destroyed.
