Default Carole Nash ( the small print)

FYI


I have been in touch with Carole Nash regarding motorcycle insurance.
I have been informed that their motorcycle policy does not cover me to drive a motor cycle purchased in the UK or N.Ireland
I can transfer it to my name ( I assume using the UK registration number )and add it to the policy but I will not be insured to drive it until it is in the Republic of Ireland

So with a policy from Carole Nash you cant pick up a bike and drive it back from outside Ireland

Quote Carole Nash email " The policy needs to start with the bike in the republic of Ireland. There is no way around this."

contrary to what I was told when buying my bike in the UK and I rang specifically to ask that question so that I could ride it back. They even insured the bike while in the UK over the phone with the UK plates and the VIN once I had bought it.

CN polices, or at least my one does, do cover you for European travel.

What you need to be careful of is that your licence is valid (are you on a learner permit or a novice rider), and that the bike has some road tax left on it. If the old bill stop you in England Im not sure what the story would be if there is no tax on the bike.

Uk tax is all electronic now so it cant be sold with tax anymore. The seller gets a refund for the remaining tax

Nothing new in this, you cannot use the cover to ride a bike you already own(such as purchased in the UK) by that extension, it's exactly the same for any motor policy in this country or other I would imagine to be fair. It's to prevent a person from insuring a smaller machine and using that extension to use something bigger.

The bike or whatever machine it is, must be added to the policy.

Now if it's a third parties bike, and say it's a private sale in the UK, then you might be fine, you may want to check that one out, as I don't know.

That why I asked and I was told that I can buy a bike in UK and add to my policy and wont be insured on it while I drive it back to Ireland, I was told I have to get it shipped back. I have bought bikes in UK before and it was never a problem

Technically yes I suppose. You can chance it; I have many times and always got away with it even when stopped but it's a risk and they give no grace period.

You would have the V5 and a receipt. You'd only have a problem if behaving like a complete prat. When I bought my Tiger in the UK there was no issue. Just rang CN with the time for the insurance change over.
