Taking a motorbike training course is not just a money-saving venture. It’s about helping you become safer on the roads and a more considerate rider in general.
However, some insurance providers recognise that riders that take advanced courses are less risky to insure so some courses will help reduce your premium.
It’s important that your course is a proper accredited programme otherwise it’s unlikely to help with your premiums. If you’re in any doubt, ask your insurance providers before you sign up for the course.
With some insurance providers offering a discount of about 10% on your premium, remember you won’t necessarily save the amount that you spend on the course.
That said, your insurance shouldn’t be your primary motivation in the first place!
Check as far as you are able that your chosen course is led by highly skilled trainers. In some cases, they are led by serving or retired police riders.
The courses listed below are approved Government training programmes from their “Think” motorbike campaign. But you may have to speak directly to your insurer to have the reduction in your premium reflected.
