Could 2022 Be the Year You Get a Motorcycle? #CP

As we step into the new year, many of us are deciding to make changes in our lives that bring us more joy or improve our lifestyles in some way. This is the time that a lot of people will take action in areas they’ve been wanting to for a while. If you’ve been considering getting a motorcycle, chances are, this could be a good time to get the wheels turning. Here are some things to consider that will help you along the way.

Passing Your Test

Of course, to ride a motorcycle, you’re going to have to pass your motorcycle test. This will make you road legal and will allow you to ride safely and independently. This is an absolutely essential requirement if you want to ride on public roads. The thing here is that you’re going to have to find the right test to meet your needs. There are different tests to be able to ride different specs of motorbikes. Once you know which test you’ll need to do to pass, you can take the relevant training course and carry out the test when your instructor feels you’re ready.

Choosing a Bike

There are countless bikes out there to choose from. You may want to purchase one before passing your test, or once you’ve already passed your test. Make sure to look well into the requirements you want of a bike to make sure that you choose something that ticks all of your boxes. This could be a good time to look into motorcycle accessories too.

Insuring Your Bike

Like a car, you need to make sure that you insure your bike before being able to ride it on the roads. This will make sure that you are covered if you hit anyone else’s vehicle, property or have any other issues. Remember that this is a legal requirement, so you need to make sure that you're fully covered before taking to the roads. There are plenty of price comparison sites out there that will help you to get the best deal for your money.


When you pass your test and are fully covered with your own bike to use, you need to make sure that you prioritise your safety and others’ safety at all times while you’re on the road. This will help to keep you safe. Keep other road users, pedestrians, pets, wildlife, property and anything else in mind while driving. You can be the best rider in the world, but others’ irresponsible actions can still cause accidents. There are also other sorts of accessories and equipment that can help to protect you better. Make sure to read plenty of reviews and information that can help you to make informed decisions.

Hopefully, these pieces of advice will help you to get on the road sooner rather than later! Each tip will be a step in the right direction and you could find yourself riding your dream bike before you know it!
