Did Adrian Flux not do it?

I’m sorry, but if Adrian flux will not do it, you have reached the end of the line with UK insurers because I have never yet known them turned down a risk. What exactly is the problem that they are telling you if, indeed, they are telling you anything?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.



Sorry for the delay. They say they won't insure anyone without a UK license. I tried Aeon, they put me through to Bikesure, which put me to Footman.


So I have no alternatives?


Is it possible for me to get a UK license if I have a permanent address I can use in the UK and would I have to surrender my U.S. license?


Could I use temporary U.S. plates and Green CArd insurance.


What documentation do I need to cross borders?


Any other possible work arounds? Could someone with a UK license add me to their policy, (I don't know if this is practical).


Thanks very much

I wouldnt even have rung footman james. Have you tried Peter James Insurance?
It isnt common to have second riders on bike policies.
Can you not insure in USA on UK plates?

I tried Peter James, no dice....thanks for all the information, my big error was assuming any of this would be logical. Thanks again,

That really is the end of the line, sorry.
