Insurance for 18 year old on A2 Provisional?

This is my first post on here so sorry if this topic has come up again and again but most people here getting they're A2's are in their 20's.

I've got my Theory test booked and will get my provisional after that.Will do the IBT Courses before I get my bike but Im wondering if there is even a point, I keep hearing that people under 21 are getting shut down for insurance. I was thinking of getting like an MT-03(660cc) or a GSR 600 or something similar. But would also get a 250cc like an ninja 250cc if that would make it easier.

Pretty much just wondering if there is any point in actually getting my A2 or should I just get a car instead and then go for the A2 when im like 20. Will anyone actually insure me?

Yeah just get a reg plate for the type of bike you’re looking at from Done Deal and give them a shout

Give all insurance companies a ring it’s only a phone call but make sure you try Liberty as well that’s where I got cheapest insurance for both my youngfellas when they were starting on bikes. At your age it’s going to be expensive in my opinion on the types of bikes you are looking at

liberty and Carol Nash will give you a quote no problem. do the assessment test before you get insured and it will be reduced more

my son at 18 got insured on 125 varadero and i know of a 17 year getting insured for 900 on another 125 last year

Re: Insurance for 18 year old on A2 Provisional?

cheaper than getting insured on a cage but your looking at 125's maybe a 250 with a little higher insurance on the 250 (youll struggle with the older inline 4 250 sports when it comes to insurance). as said above the only one to tell you is the insurance company themselves. anyone on here could tell you what they paid for insurance at your age but that may not be relevant today.
