Is your dad getting a brand new motorcycle for Father’s Day? If he is, you’ll want to make sure that the motorcycle is insured. However, motorcycle insurance can be quite expensive due to the perceived safety risks of riding a motorcycle. Luckily there are a few ways that you can lower your dad’s monthly rate on motorcycle insurance.
One of the best ways of lowering a motorcycle insurance policy is by having your dad take a few motorcycle safety courses. Safety courses are a great idea, no matter the circumstance, in order to ensure your father’s safe on his new bike.
Additionally, many insurance companies will also provide a discount on motorcycle insurance premiums if the owner can show that he or she has completed a motorcycle safety course. This is because insurance companies rightfully assume that there will be less of a chance of an accident if the person riding the bike has more training.
Before enrolling your dad into a motorcycle safety course, be sure to contact the insurance company to make sure the course is approved. If they approve of the safety course, you could save up to 15 percent off of your motorcycle insurance premiums. There are usually two types of programs available: beginner and expert. Beginner classes teach safe riding techniques, while expert courses teach more advanced biking techniques.
Don’t forget to get your dad motorcycle insurance in addition to a motorcycle, and enroll him in a motorcycle safety course as well. For more information on proper insurance coverage, contact us at CCW Insurance today.
