What can Motorbike Insurance cover?
GoSkippy can present you with a range of cheap motorbike insurance policies that still cover all your needs. We have three levels of insurance cover for your bike:
Gives you the same cover as Third Party Fire and Theft, plus you’re covered for your vehicle and injuries in the event of an accident, whether it’s your fault or not. This includes damage caused to your bike when it’s unattended, such as a vandalism incident or a hit and run.
Offers slightly more than the legal minimum level of cover. TPFT gives you everything you get with third party only. It also covers fire damage to your car, or damage because of a theft or attempted theft of your car. You are not covered for damaged to your own car in the event of an accident that was your fault.
This is the most basic cover you can buy, legally. It means your legal liability to third parties is covered, including damage to their vehicle or compensation for injuries sustained if the accident was your fault. If your car is damaged in any way, this isn’t covered.

Who needs Motorbike Insurance?
Like car insurance, it’s a legal requirement to have motorbike insurance if you ride a motorcycle on a public road in the UK. Motorcycle insurance makes sure that if your bike is stolen, involved in an accident or damaged, you can recover the costs.
How old do I have to be to ride a motorbike?
You are legally required to be at least 17 years old to ride a motorbike. You will first need to apply for a provisional driving licence, followed by passing a compulsory basic training course (CBT), a practical test and a theory test. You can then ride a light motorcycle up to 125cc For a full list of what types of motorcycles you can drive at what ages, head to the government website.
