What vehicles do we cover?
Scooters and mopeds come with a range of different engine sizes, from small 50cc mopeds that are great for beginners up to large capacity maxi scooters and three wheelers. 50cc mopeds: usually have an engine size of 50cc or lower with a top speed of around 28mph and can be ridden from the age of 16, with L-plates and a CBT. These bikes are a great option for learners and young riders. We offer affordable 50cc moped insurance for both qualified and learner riders. Looking for advice on a small moped? See our post on the 10 most popular 50cc scooters. 125cc scooters: these larger engined bikes can be ridden from the age of 17, after passing a CBT or a motorcycle theory, with an A1 Motorcycle Licence. These larger bikes are great for commuting in inner cities and towns. Maxi scooters: maxi scooters are large capacity scooters normally 250cc and above, they’re greater in size than normal scooters and more suitable for longer journeys and touring. To ride a maxi scooter, you will need an A2 or A scooter licence. Electric scooters: are increasing in popularity as an eco-friendly commuting option. Electric moped and scooter licences work in the same way as their petrol counterparts, with 16 years olds able to ride vehicles reaching a speed of 28mph with L-plates and larger electric scooters requiring a CBT or bike licence Classic scooters: scooters over 20 years old are considered classics. We offer cover for all vintage and classic scooter makes and models, including Vespa and Lambretta models. Find out more about classic scooter insurance. Policies on classics tend to include benefits like agreed value, salvage retention and spare parts cover.
At Lexham Insurance, we offer multi-vehicle schemes for riders with more than one scooter. You can even mix and match different types of vehicles, such as adding a classic scooter to your insurance policy. For a multi vehicle scooter and moped insurance policy, please call our broking team who will work directly with our panel of insurers to get you the best quote.
What’s the difference between a moped and a scooter? A moped is a two-wheel vehicle with an engine size under 50cc and capable of no more than 28mph. If the engine is larger than this and has a step through frame and a platform for the riders feet then it is classified as a scooter. What do you need to ride a moped? To get started riding you will need to be 16 years old or older and have a provisional licence. To ride as a learner you will also need to complete your CBT, and to remove your L-plates you will need to take a moped or motorcycle test. (Unless you have a full UK driving licence and passed your test before 1st February 2001 , in which case you can ride a moped without L-plates already).
Full payment can be made by credit or debit card (but not American Express) by phone or online, or by cheque.
A small charge applies to payments by credit card.
To spread the cost you can pay an initial deposit by card and take a loan for the balance, repayable by 10 monthly direct debits from a suitable bank account.
If you are under 18, you will need a guarantor for the loan. Full details will be provided.
