Top questions about motorcycle insurance

Does my insurance cover me to carry passengers?

Motorbike insurance policy document icon

Often referred to as pillion cover, this will depend on the policy you buy, and you should check the terms and conditions of your cover before carrying any passengers. You’ll also need to make sure your licence allows you to carry passengers.

How do the motorcycle licence grades work?

Driving licence icon

Similar to how driving licences are given categories allowing you to drive different vehicles (cars, buses, trucks etc.), your licence will only entitle you to ride certain motorcycles. Restrictions will normally be based on your age, riding experience, and the power of the bike. You can read more on the GOV.UK website.

Can I transfer my car's no claims bonus to my bike?

Insurance no claims bonus document icon

Some insurance companies will allow you to carry your cars no claims bonus over to your motorbike policy, but the majority will not.

What do the different levels of cover mean?

Driving licence icon

There are three main levels of cover available with motorbike insurance; third party only, third party fire & theft, and fully comprehensive. They work the same way as they do with a car insurance policy, with the level of protection and cover increasing across each. You can read more about what they cover in our guide.

What kind of insurance should I get?

Third-party only (TPO)

Blue insurance document icon

The minimum amount of cover you are legally required to have. While you might think this is the cheapest option for riders, that is not always the case. It’s a basic level of cover that covers damage to others as the result of an accident deemed your fault. It doesn’t cover your bike for repairs or replacements if it is stolen, damaged or involved in an accident.

Third-party, fire and theft (TPFT)

Blue insurance document icon

This gives you the same level of cover as with third-party, but will also cover you for repairs and replacement if it is stolen or damaged by fire.


Insurance document icon

Offers one of the highest level of protection you and your bike can get. As well as including cover for other people and their property in the event of an accident, you're also covered for damage to your motorcycle.

Things to remember when taking out motorcycle insurance

While we make it easy to compare quotes from a range of different providers, with so many options available it’s important to do your research on the best insurance for your needs:
  • The use of your bike
  • Will you be using your bike for social use, for delivering food, or just for commuting to your place of work and other offices? There are different types of cover tailored to the use of your bike to ensure you’re covered correctly and to avoid invalidating any claims you make.

  • Security
  • How and where your bike is secured is a factor in the cost of your insurance premium. Premiums tend to be cheaper if a bike is not kept in an easily accessible location.

  • Your choice of bike
  • Factors such as the make, model, size of your bike’s engine and its age will all influence how much you pay for insurance. If you have a non standard bike with some modifications, you may be able to receive a specialist insurance policy, based on your bike’s specifications, from one of our providers.
