This includes damage to their vehicle. Or compensation for injuries sustained if the accident was your fault. The cover extends to fire damage to your bike, or damage arising out of the theft or attempted theft of your bike.

Your legal liability to third parties is covered. This includes damage to their vehicle or compensation for injuries sustained if the accident was your fault. The cover also extends to fire damage to your bike. Or damage arising out of the theft or attempted theft of your bike.

What does provisional insurance offer?

As younger drivers are statistically more likely to be involved in accidents. They have a limited amount of experience driving it is important that they are insured. Provisional insurance offers teenagers and young people and older provisional drivers. Cover until such time that they pass their drivers licence. GoSkippy offers competitive quotes and low monthly premiums. Especially if a more experienced motorist, such as a parent is the main driver on the provisional policy.
