A guide to CBT insurance

After turning 16, you’re able to take out a provisional motorcycle licence and complete CBT (Compulsory Basic Training).

Insurance for 16 and 17 year olds who’ve completed CBT is often known as ‘CBT insurance’.

Types of CBT insurance

Below are some of the main types of cover available with CBT insurance –

Road risks

Road risks will cover you for accidents. How much cover you get for your own vehicle will depend on the level of cover you take out. A fully comprehensive policy will cover your own vehicle as well as that of other road users.

Breakdown cover

Breakdown cover is always important and if you don’t already have it, most insurance providers will be able to add it to your policy for an additional cost.

Vehicle replacement

If your bike were to be written off or need extensive repairs, you can have a replacement vehicle provided during this time.

CBT insurance FAQs

How much does CBT insurance cost?

The cost of a CBT insurance policy will depend on –

  • Your age
  • The value of your vehicle
  • Where it’s kept when not in use
  • The area you live in

Are there any ways to save money?

A couple of great ways to save money on CBT insurance are –

  • Shop around for quotes – Getting quotes from several different insurance providers is one of the best ways you can save money when taking out a policy. It allows you to easily compare them and choose the one that’s best value for money.
  • Keep your bike locked in a secure garage – Unfortunately mopeds and motorcycles can be big targets for thieves and vandals. Having a secure garage to keep yours in will make it much less likely to be targeted and therefore reduce insurance costs.

Do I need to display L plates on my bike?

Until you obtain a full moped or motorcycle licence, you’ll need to display L plates. Failure to do so could not only invalidate your insurance but also result in a 3 point penalty.
