There'll also be questions on your riding history, including the chance to tell potential insurers of riding qualifications you've achieved, whether you're a member of a biking organisation, and if you're also a car driver and/or owner.
The final section will ask for details of the bike to be insured, including its value, security arrangements, whether it's modified, if it will be used to tow or with a sidecar, and if pillion use is required.
On the quotes screen, you'll be given a clear indication of the policy price, excess levels, and whether personal accident, legal assistance, breakdown cover and helmet and leather cover are included.
