But can you insure a motorbike that has previously been written-off? There are insurers that will insure your bike, if it is safe to be on the road of course. If your bike has been given one of the more serious categories such as category S, it will be more difficult to find an insurer that is willing to insure it and offer you a policy. You may also find that you won’t be able to put your motorcycle back on the road.

All motorcycles will need an MOT pass and depending on the damage caused, have an expert engineers report prior to it being assessed as safe to ride and before an insurer will grant you a policy.

You must declare to your insurer if your motorcycle has been previously written-off.

So what are the category of Motorcycles. Have a read below we have tried to cover this the best we can.

Category A

This is the most severe one for your motorcycle. As a result of a category A you will not be able to recover the vehicle and it will consequently be destroyed. Even the parts have to be scrapped and cannot be salvaged or resold.

Category B

This is similar to category A. The difference, it is possible to reuse and recycle certain parts of the vehicle. These parts must be checked as they need to be of a certain standard and deemed safe before you will be allowed to take them. This category cannot go back on the road.

Category N

When a motorcycle has a small amount of damage, usually more cosmetic. This damage is usually cheaper and more straight forward to repair than a category B write-off.

Category S

Motorcycles that are Category S can be repaired. Although repairable, the cost has been determined to be more than the motorcycle is worth. Some bikers prefer to claim on their insurance, especially if the bike is rare in nature or not easy to replace. Some insurance companies have been known to refuse to pay for the repairs in this category which results in you having to pay to repair the bike yourself or buy a new one to replace the damaged bike.

It can be a financial strain and upsetting losing the bike you loved and it can get confusing trying to establish which type of write-off you’ve been awarded. Repairing a written-off motorcycle can run into thousands of pounds, a set of front forks for instance can cost you in excess of £4000. If the bike is unusual, very old, or very new, then finding second hand ones can be like a needle in a haystack. Sometimes it's best to just sell it to a professional motorcycle buyer like and start again. A bike will never feel the same again once it's been written-off. We have all been there.
