Scooter and Moped Insurance
Scooters and mopeds are extremely common on UK roads and account for around one in three new two-wheel registrations in the UK.
They’re cheap to buy, cheap to run and generally cheap to insure. They’re also one type of bike that all riders can ride, whether you have simply completed Compulsory Basic Training (CBT) or passed the most basic of motorcycle tests.
Why are scooters and mopeds so popular?
The major reason for the immense popularity of scooters and mopeds is the fact that 16-year-olds can ride scooters and mopeds of 125cc or less when they have completed their CBT.
Essentially, they’re one of the first routes to life on the road for young people and they’re also the cheapest way for young people to get on the road, too.
Scooters and mopeds can cost as little as £500 for new models, and even less for used models. They are also cheap to tax and fuel efficient, meaning outgoings on petrol are fairly limited, especially given that long distance travel is unlikely on a 50cc.
Lastly, scooters and mopeds are cheap to insure for young riders; they’re much cheaper to insure than cars and larger capacity two-wheelers.
Types of scooter and moped insurance
The types and levels of insurance cover for scooters and mopeds are identical to any other forms of motorcycle insurance.
That means there is Third Party, Third Party Fire and Theft and Comprehensive cover available.
