Training 'can help keep bike insurance costs down'
Published Date: 05/07/2012 11:56:05
Bike riders looking to keep their insurance costs to a minimum should undertake advanced training to lower the risk of being involved in an accident.
This is the suggestion of Steve Kenward, chief executive officer at the Motorcycle Industry Association - which has been in operation for more than 100 years - who observed avoiding a claim is the most effective way to prevent premium rises.
Mr Kenward recommended people regularly check their skill level by signing up to a Bikesafe assessment scheme.
By doing so, individuals will find they can reduce the likelihood of being involved in an accident, while it might also serve to bolster their confidence when out on the road and increase the enjoyment of hitting the streets on two wheels.
Mr Kenward stated: "Looking after your bike - ensuring it is always parked securely, locked, fitted with a tracker device and always restrained will minimise the chance of theft."
