What is learner motorcycle insurance?
Learner motorcycle insurance covers provisional bike licence holders who have passed their CBT and are now legally allowed to ride a bike unsupervised with L plates.
As a new rider with no built-up no claims bonus (NCB), you might find it trickier than most to get cover. We compare quotes and can tailor cover to suit you.
What is new rider bike insurance?
New rider insurance is for those who have recently received a pink AM licence, A1 licence, A2 licence or full A licence and are now using their bike to get around.
How much is motorcycle insurance for a new rider?
New rider insurance can be costly, especially if you’ve completed a direct access scheme (DAS) and don’t have much experience on the road but can now ride bikes with a high cc. However, after a year or two of claims-free riding, the cost of your cover can come down significantly.
How much you pay for new rider insurance depends on a number of factors, including the motorbike, scooter or moped you choose and what you use it for (for example, for commuting or pleasure). It can be difficult to definitively say how much your cover will cost, but thankfully we’re able to tailor policies to suit your needs and budget.

Which bikes are best for new riders?
The type of bike you should choose will depend on a number of factors, including where and how you’ll be using your bike. For instance, if you live in the city, you might want something with a smaller engine, whereas if you’ll be using your bike for longer rides, you might want to consider buying a bike that’s of a larger capacity but still quite lightweight and nimble, as a starting point.
