Howdy chaps & chapesses - Newbie question,

Post by techniques » Mon Oct 05, 2020 5:19 pm

After falling in love with 2 wheels on a scooter last year in Thailand, I finally did my CBT in Jan this year, bought a 125cbf, as a commuter and then Covid happened.

After a couple of months on the road, and a few strained (struggling to hold 70mph) trips on the A3, I felt ready for more power.

I booked my DAS for the same week we went into lockdown. Nice.



Fast forward 6 months, did my DAS in September and passed my mod1+2! Huzzah! Now planning on purchasing the highly recommended SV650 or an MT-07 (What I learnt on, I love this bike.)


Newbie question, I obviously had insurance for the 125cbf on my "provisional" licence, will this still count as 1yr NCD when I renew on a bigger bike with a Full A licence?

Thanks, and hi again.

Congratulations on the pass :cheers:
Yes a full year riding on CBT counts for NCB. Every year on my insurance application I say I've had my licence n years, and I want an NCB for n+1.

Hi there :)
the law in all it's majestic equality forbids the rich as well as the poor to sleep under bridges to beg in the street and to steal bread.

Well that ain't going to happen, full licence in hand riding 125.

3 months is long time.... I lasted less than 3 weeks if I recall...
