Being involved in a motorbike accident can be a traumatic experience. What should I do after my motorbike accident?
1. Talk with the emergency services: when the emergency services arrive at the scene of the motorbike accident, you should give a full report to the police. Emotions tend to run high after an accident, but it’s important to stay as calm as possible.
2. Swap insurance details: if you are involved in a road traffic accident, make sure that you swap details with the parties involved in the collision.
3. Record details of your motorbike accident: take photos of any damage to yourself on your camera, and try to note down information about the location and driving conditions. Take the images and jot down the information as soon as possible, as these details can act as valuable evidence during a motorbike accident claim.
4. Don’t fix your bike: you may be tempted to get your bike fixed right after a motorbike accident. However, the authorities will consider its condition as evidence along with the clothes you were wearing.
5. Start a claim: if you find insurance costs too much after an accident, you could try adjusting your voluntary excess of cover, which could bring prices down.

You first need to get a provisional licence and complete CBT if you want to ride a motorbike and a moped. Provisional category B car licences and provisional category A licences now only cover you to ride motor tricycles if you have a physical disability. You can drive a motor tricycle of any power rating if both of the following are true:
1. You’re over 21.
2. You have a full car driving licence.
You’ll need a full category A1 motorbike licence to ride motor tricycles up to power output 15 Kilowatts, and a full category A motorbike licence to ride trikes with a power output more than 15 kW. I recommend all riders take a Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) course before getting their license.
You need to have the right provisional driving licence when you’re learning to ride. Riding a motorcycle can be extremely dangerous. If you’re using your own vehicle you’ll need to make sure it:
1. has a valid V5C registration certificate.
2. is taxed.
3. has an MOT.
All riders have to pass the theory test before taking the motorcycle practical test.
