Motorcycle Insurance FAQ
Yes. To ride your motorcycle on UK roads, you need to be insured. If you're involved in an accident, damage another vehicle or injure someone, having insurance will protect you from liability, and if your bike is stolen or vandalised, insurance can provide compensation. If you don't have motorcycle insurance, you risk a range of penalties such as a £300 fine, six penalty points, or being disqualified from riding your bike altogether.
The cost of motorbike insurance can vary due to several factors. When we calculate the cost of your quote, we're assessing the risk of insuring you as a rider, looking at how likely you are to claim and how expensive it would be to pay out if you did make a claim. We consider your riding history and the size and capacity of your bike, as well as your age and where you live, among other factors. 
Your motorcycle insurance policy will automatically allow you to ride within the European Union and any other country which has agreed to follow the EU Motor Insurance Directive (number 2009/103/EC), for up to 90 days in any period of insurance. If you want to ride abroad for more than 90 days in a year, then give us a call on 0344 412 2171 so we can look to arrange this for you.
Yes. Passengers would be covered while riding on and getting onto and off of your bike and riding in or getting into and out of your sidecar. 
This benefit will be stated on your bike insurance schedule and insurance certificate. Subject to age conditions and occupation and for most types of bikes, your insurance will cover you to ride other bikes. It is best to check this when you take out the policy. 
Yes. You can add another person to your policy as a named rider. As a named rider, they'll enjoy the same level of cover as you on your bike; however, be advised that if they make a claim, your No Claims Discount will be affected.
Yes. We have a list of modifications that Bennetts accept as standard.
