Motorcycle Insurance Offence
Motorcycle claims and uninsured drivers are unfortunately still present in courts as not all drivers sign up to valid insurance when driving. However there are companies such as Motor Insurance Bureau (MIB) motorcycle claims who aim to compensate vulnerable drivers against negligent drivers who do not have insurance whether they are motorcyclists or have another vehicle. As motorbikes are becoming a highly popular mode of transport, unfortunately they are beginning to be highly at risk due to the dangerous driving of others, and the petit frame of their own vehicle which can lead to motorcycle accidents and uninsured drivers. The smaller frame of a motorcycle can also lead to injury on the road if the driver encounters an uneven road surface either.
Motorcycle accidents and uninsured drivers occur as naturally as all other motorcycle accidents, as they can be caused by speeding or dangerous driving during adverse weather conditions such as rain or snow. Motorcycles are at risk of collision with other drivers as due to their smaller frame they often unseen in drivers’ blind spots in their mirrors. Motorcyclists should also exercise caution when approaching sharp corners, and on uneven roads. Because of this, motorcyclists should have a reliable motorcycle kit, which will include protective gear such as a suitable helmet depending on which type of journey you are embarking on, protective gloves which will provide extra warmth and extra grip, protective boots to ensure safety and warmth, body armour if necessary to protect against injury in case of motorcycle accidents and uninsured drivers. Motorcycle drivers should also take more caution as if they were to collide in an accident, they are at risk of being thrown from the vehicle as they are not surrounded by the same protection as a car or other vehicle, and if either party was speeding it could end in fatal injury.
It is important to keep up to date with the highway-code and driving regulations and changes in your area to ensure that you are driving safely to protect yourself and other drivers, which can help protect yourself against motorcycle accidents and uninsured drivers, as well as any accidents with other vehicles.

Motorcycle accidents and uninsured drivers can be avoided if great emphasis is placed upon new drivers to insure them and their motorcycle correctly when first passing their test however a great responsibility is placed on motorcyclists themselves, to avoid becoming disqualified from driving and to avoid accidents. If a driver was insured however, they may only face the addition of penalty points to their licence, depending on the seriousness of the collision. A driver is allowed up to twelve points on their licence before they may face a minimum of a 6 month disqualification from driving. After four years have passed from the initial accident which has caused the driver to gain points, the driver may send their licence to the DVLA and ask for the points to be removed.
