A handy guide to new rider’s insurance 

Being a ‘new’ rider doesn’t always necessarily mean you’re a ‘young’ rider. Many riders, especially female, start at a later stage in life and see riding a motorcycle as a hobby, rather than to commute.

Being a new rider doesn’t means you’re an unsafe rider either, but there are plenty of ways to keep your first years premiums down. Whether you’re looking for third party fire and theft or fully comprehensive cover, we can find the insurance plan to suit you by comparing quotes from some of the UK’s leading insurance providers to bring you the cheapest premium.

One of the most simple yet effective ways of reducing your premium is to take an advanced riding course  such as The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA), Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM) and Enhanced Rider Scheme (ERS)  an- it shows insurers that you’re safe on the road and can often reduce insurance costs significantly.

Devitt also offer 10% discount for riders who have completed their advanced training courses with our partnership with THINK!

Additional security measures such as keeping your bike secure overnight by putting it in a garage or shed can also help reduce your insurance further. Adding an alarm or immobiliser will help when you’re out and about for extra protection. Good old fashioned locks and chains are also great ways on extra security if you can’t secure your bike through other means.

Extra cover for new riders 

Being a new rider you may want to take extra protection on top of your basic cover. Devitt have a wide range of additional policies and products for further protection and peace of mind.

Excess Protect could help to lower your premiums, while Personal Accident and Personal Accident with Leathers and Helmet will give you added protection in the event of an accident.
