Travel Insurance Questions and Information – If you are planning to use a motorbike abroad whilst using your travel insurance, check you are able to drive/ ride the motorbike you are hiring / using. Check your licence before you travel. Unless you have had your licence since 2001, then you cannot ride a moped 50cc etc or above unless you have taken your CBT ( Compulsory Basic Training ) in the UK.
Check the different categories – DVLA / Driving Licence Categories
Insurers are strict about cover if you are not permitted to drive/ ride the vehicle/ motorbike you have rented.
Remember to get a rental agreement and double check your driving licence when renting overseas.
Just because you have a license to drive a car it does NOT automatically entitle you to ride a moped or higher cc motorbike.
