Frequently asked questions about Scooter and Moped Insurance

What’s the difference between a moped and a scooter?

A scooter is a specific type of motorbike: containing an engine that’s 50cc or above, plus what’s known as a ‘step-through’ where there’s space for your feet to sit together.

Vespa is popular and iconic scooter that has a stylish shape and often features multiple wing mirrors. Vespas now have a cult status thanks to films like Quadrophenia and its links with the mod subculture.

Scooters come with 125cc engines, which are perfect for commuters in cities looking to nip through rush-hour traffic.

A moped is any motorbike under 50cc, which tends to have maximum speed limit of 28mph. Boasting great fuel efficiency, mopeds are useful for commuting and particularly suitable for city riding.

They’re often a popular choice for younger people – especially 16-year-olds, who are legally allowed to ride a motorbike below 50cc.

Do you need insurance for a moped or scooter?

You sure do, just like any other car or motorbike, you’ll need to have at least Third Party Only insurance to ride your moped or scooter legally on UK roads

How do I get cheap scooter and moped insurance?

Scooter and moped insurance is usually cheaper than standard motorbike insurance, due to the fact that the engines are less powerful and their value is often lower.

However, your experience can make a difference to your moped and scooter insurance, as those that have less experience on two wheels will generally pay more for insurance until they can prove their ability.

Good security measures will often help with your scooter or moped insurance cost in the UK, especially if you live in a city, where thefts are more likely.

Layer your security up as much as you can, ie use as many devices as you can; a chain, ground anchor, disc lock, cover, alarm immobiliser, tracker and so on…

Storing your scooter or moped in a garage will always be a great way to bring your insurance premium down, although this obviously isn’t possible for everyone!

What info do I need for scooter and moped insurance?

Getting an insurance quote for your moped or scooter should be fairly simple, most things like your name, address, occupation etc you be able to recall pretty easily!

It’s a good idea to have some of the following info ready that you may not know off by heart:

  • Your licence details
  • Number of year you have of No Claims, for your No Claim Discount (if you have any)
  • Details of any claims, accidents or convictions you may have had

You can choose to do your scooter and moped quote online or if you’d like a little extra help with the process you can give us a call and we’ll happily be of service.
