Types of Riders We Cover
You Declare Who Rides & How Your Motorcycle will be Used
We ask a few questions to make sure you get the correct premium for your rider insurance
Singapore riders love their bikes, and ride them in different ways. We want to make sure you get the best premium for your rider insurance in Singapore, so we ask you about the Main Rider and how the bike will be used, ranging from delivery services or personal use. That way we make sure you're only paying for what you need.
IMPORTANT! Remember to declare the correct information:
It's important that you answer the questions about Main Rider and Motorcycle Usage truthfully so you're insured in the event of an accident. Since we calculate your premium based on the information you declare, that information is used when we review and pay claims.
Rider & Usage Requirements For Insurance
Age & Experience
The main rider (person that rides the motorcycle most) must be aged 25 - 65 with 2+ years' riding experience. Past Insurance
In the last 3 years, no rider has been refused insurance or had it terminated for any reason. Licence History
No rider has had their licence suspended or cancelled in the last 5 years.
The motorcycle cannot be used for commercial purposes, hire or reward. However if you use your bike for food deliveries only - and not any other types of delivery e.g. courier - this can be covered if you declare such usage to us fully. Motorcycle Ownership & Registration
We can only provide rider insurance cover if the owner of the motorcycle is the policyholder. Your motorcycle must also be registered in Singapore.
